Terry Gilliam 'hospitalised' as he waits on Don Quixote movie court verdict

It also follows a medical scare for Gilliam over the weekend (05-06May18) - the director suffered a stroke in London and was unable to attend Monday's court hearing in Paris.

The court also ordered Gilliam and other entities associated with the "Don Quixote" to pay Branco's legal fees, estimated to be just under $2,000.

"The guy Who Killed Don Quixote" is still your narrative of a modern-day advertisements executive called Toby who matches an elderly Spanish cobbler who considers himself to be Don Quixote.

It looked as if the film, starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce and Olga Kurylenko, would finally debut on 19 May as the closing film at Cannes but Paulo Branco, a disgruntled producer who exited the project, filed for a court injunction last month, claiming his firm, Alfama Films Production, owns the rights to release the Don Quixote film, and is fighting to prevent the screening going ahead without his consent.

Shortly after the ruling was announced, the film festival took to Twitter to say it was "delighted". "Jabberwocky" (1977); 7:30 p.m. "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975) with short film "Terry Gilliam's Lost Animations." $13.

Those who have been following know that Gilliam has been working on this film in some capacity since the '90s, and that in 1998, he even had the likes of Jean Rochefort and Johnny Depp attached. In Cannes a year ago, Branco said that Gilliam had been making the film - which wrapped production in June 2017 - illegally, with Alfama Films owning its exclusive rights.

Gilliam tried to make the movie eight times, with the cast changing to include the likes of Ewan McGregor, John Hurt, Robert DuVall and Jack O'Connell. According to a report from Variety, Amazon Studios is set to pull out of its distribution deal for Terry Gilliam's latest film.

Courts in France and Britain have previously sided with Branco in the long-running dispute.
