EXCLUSIVE: Disney has closed a deal for an untitled pitch to be written by Steve Pink and Jeff Morris, and produced by Infinitum Nihil’s Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski. The project is best described as a modern re-imagining of Don Quixote. Depp has long been intrigued with that character, and at one time was attached to the Quixote film that Terry Gilliam has tried to make.

So,this is how Disney is thinking of doing the Don Quixote story well good luck for them because they have tried over and over again which often leaves them abadoning the project.Then again if we look at past attempts at several story adaptations I think a lesson here is that something that has been tried before by Disney to adapt will eventually be made although they will finally hit the right formula.

So is the assumption that this will be live action, with Depp starring? I think he would make a great Quixote, but I'd love to see this in animation, and if it gets done as live action now, then it would at least be a good long while before they would ever consider it again as an animated film.

What I would love to see is an animated version, but still starring Depp as the voice of Quixote.

I believe Depp is interested in playing the Pancho Villa character. I hope he brings Gilliam on-board to direct. He's been trying to get his Don Quixote project off the ground for the last couple of years, but there's been a lack of funding for it.

Disney's now going after their cancelled animated movies. :lol: Maybe we'll get a live-action Kingdom of the Sun too. :P

Ha ha, I doubt this will happen given the curse attached to film versions of Don Quixote. Ask Walt Disney, Terry Gilliam or Orson Welles. :lol:

If this ever actually does get made, I'll be excited for it but I'll still hope for an animated version.

There's definitely a few other deleted films I'd like to see in live-action like The Snow Queen and My Peoples and of course Kingdom of the Sun although it wouldn't be the same without Eartha Kitt.

You mean Tanned? Yeah, that's already set for Spring 2020. The ballpark for Tanned 2 is Fall 2020.

Don Quixote is heading to Disney's streaming service that's set to launch in fall 2019.

Quote:
The goal in the first year is to generate four to five original movies, and five TV series for the streaming service. [...] Here are some of the priority movie projects I heard about: Don Quixote, from a Billy Ray script.
