He may have found two stars -- Robert Duvall and Ewan McGregor -- but Terry Gilliam's ever-doomed The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is dead again.

The doom started creeping in just as Gilliam made progress. Duvall, who was set to play Don Quixote de la Mancha, was really apprehensive that the funding was going to come together. In fact, he stated that he wouldn't even start preparing for the role until the project was definite and secure. Over the summer there were rumblings that Gilliam had suffered another financial setback, and now it's been confirmed: Financing has collapsed, and his long-gestating, long-plagued passion project is in limbo once again.
