Disney closes deal for “a modern re-imagining of Don Quixote” to be produced by Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil

Add another film to Infintum Nihil’s in-development scorecard: an as-yet-untitled modern take on Don Quixote to be written by Steve Pink and Jeff Morris, and produced by Infinitum Nihil’s Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski. According to Deadline.com’s Mike Fleming, “The project is best described as a modern re-imagining of Don Quixote.” Longtime Zoners will recall that more than a decade ago, Johnny Depp was attached to appear as the Sancho Panza figure in Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a film that was shut down by a string of calamities chronicled in the excellent documentary, Lost in La Mancha. There is no word yet on whether Johnny will act in the new Don Quixote project or which role he might play.

Infinitum Nihil has also produced Dark Shadows, The Rum Diary, the upcoming Disney release The Lone Ranger, and Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated Hugo.
