Did you know? The best-known adaptation of Don Quixote is arguably the musical 'Man of La Mancha', which has been produced on stage with, among others, José Ferrer. One of the actors that Terry Gilliam considered for the role in this film was Gérard Depardieu who, like Ferrer, has also played Cyrano de Bergerac.

Trivia:
Terry Gilliam tried to make a movie about Don Quixote for many years. He already went into production of the movie once and cast Jean Rochefort as Quixote, but the project ultimately failed. This was documented in Lost in La Mancha (2002).

Josh Brolin, Johnny Depp, Sam Worthington, Robert Downey Jr., Daniel Craig and Colin Farrell have all, at some point or other, been considered to play Sancho Panza. The role will now be played by Ewan McGregor.
