Terry Gilliam: ‘The world at the moment is beyond satire’

In another interview for the same event, when asked about a possible future project, he says he's been re-reading 3 novels of Philip K. Dick, including Ubik "but everything will depend on the financing" : https://www.ara.cat/cultura/terry-gillia...80394.html
Interesting to say the least... Let's hope we'll have more news soon(ish).

Also here is a thread (in spanish) recalling bits of the masterclass with Gilliam and his editor Teresa Font : https://twitter.com/fernandopolanco/stat...8284381184

Another transcription of the press event is even more clearer by stating that "although he has some projects on his head (adapting a novel by Philip K. Dick, one of his favorite writers), the filmmaker and authentic film orchestra man, continues to focus on his Don Quixote."

Good luck to him.

I feel he and his colleagues should be very proud of Quixote.

Personally, it was one of the most orginal and surprising films I’ve seen for a long
time.

It’ struck me as self aware in a startling way: never distracting or camp.

I’m still processing my reaction and will no doubt revisit it a lot but It felt like it was something genuinely new and exciting in cinema that was enriched not only by the directors’s rich perspective on the nature (and consequences) of storytelling but (not too sound too solem) life in general.

Cheers!

Actually the conference in Barcelona has been recorded fully and can be watched here :

The part about Philip K. Dick is at the 25th minute. He doesn't sound so affirmative about an actual project though.
He also says he has something brewing for Netflix, that might be more advanced.

I really hope that the Netflix project is The Defective Detective (either as a film or a miniseries).

When he talked about Josh Brolin in Avengers, I immediately thought he was eyeing him as his Detective...
