“Do you normally associate torture with creating things? Or do you just treat it like, “I’m going to go punch in and do my job, and if I don’t figure it out, there’s always tomorrow”? Maybe ‘torture’ is too strong a word. Is misery par for the course of creating something?” - Adam Driver for Interview Magazine
A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.
De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”
According to IMDB, Driver remains cast as the lead, an arrogant advertising exec who comes home to his Spanish village and somehow becomes entangled with the legendarily insane would-be knight. Jonathan Pryce is set to play Quixote, with Olga Kurylenko and Stellan Skarsgård in supporting roles. - IndieWire
