GILLIAM GIVES GRIMM UPDATE
Empire Online caught up with The Brothers Grimm director Terry Gilliam who gave an update on the action adventure.
'Well we've finished shooting! Now we're editing it. I actually saw the first assembly today for the first time, and, well, it's going to be busy for the next few months,' says Gilliam. 'There's hundreds of special effects shots. Part of it is editing in the dark, because you're trying to imagine extraordinary things.'
The film is about the two brothers, played by Heath Ledger and Matt Damon, who travel around the Napoleonic countryside vanquishing fake monsters and demons in exchange for cash. When the French government figures out what they're up to, they force the brothers to deal with the real thing?a number of murders being committed under mysterious circumstances in the northern woods between Germany and France. It is there that they have to try and discover what's really happening and deal with it before more people are killed or their lack of success leads to the guillotine.
'These are very different from their normal characters. They're cast completely against type, which is always a gamble, but when it pays off I love it,' adds Gilliam. 'The actors love it, and the audience likes waking up and discovering the world is different every day.'
The director will also be trying to get back the rights for the failed production The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
