Reports of Terry Gilliam losing the rights to his film 20+ years in the making “The man who killed don Quixote”, are apparently vastly over hyped. Now that the details of the verdict of a French court are coming out, it seems that while Gilliam failed to terminate a contract with the plaintiff Paul Branco, the movie was not shot under any legally binding contract between the two. Instead of the loss of the rights to the film, that apparently amounts to $11,600 in damages. Which, given how much damage this particular film has already taken - seems far less reason to be alarmed as we may have thought it would. The film is - again - still alive.
