The beautiful Monica Bellucci in The Brothers Grimm
Even though the upcoming film starring Heath Ledger
and Matt Damon, The
Brothers Grimm, has received mixed reviews, I have no
doubt that I will be getting to theatres early on opening day to check this
baby out. I don't know if it is the fantasy , Terry Gilliam, Monica Bellucci,
or the 'brothers' cast for the film, but there is just something to The
Brothers Grimm that speaks 'cool.'
Terry Gilliam Interview on Grimm
That being said, I was pleased to see that the
good people over at ComingSoon
were able to catch up with Terry Gilliam and get him to say a couple words
on The Brothers Grimm. Check out a snippet from the interview below:
CS!: "The Brothers Grimm" is a project
you've been working on for quite some time. Why has it taken so long for
this to see the light of day?
Terry Gilliam: It started way back in 2002, and I finished
shooting at the end of November in 2003. I have two films in the next year.
I finished off "Grimms" and went off and did "Tideland" and then came back
and tidied both films up. I literally had to go off in the latter half of
last year and go to Canada to shoot another film, so "Grimms" was put on
hold for a bit, and then I came back and finished "Grimms" and "Tideland"
CS!: Incidentally, the
trailer was very well received at Comic-Con last month and "The Brothers
Grimm" was picked as the top movie for August in ComingSoon.net's monthly
Gilliam: That's quite interesting, especially since you
haven't seen much in the ways of advertising for "Grimms" yet. I mean, that
hopefully will start this week, and I hope they do a TV blitz, so that a
few other people out there get to know about it before it opens.
The interview continues with great questions about
Gilliam's filming style, which they call "Gilliamesque", and the
future of Terry Gillaim films. To read the whole report, head over to ComingSoon.
The Brothers Grimm comes to theatres on August 26th.
