The former Monty Python star directed the cult comedy troupe’s big screen outing Monty Python and the Holy Grail in 1975, before embarking on a successful moviemaking career, with films including Brazil, 12 Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
His last big screen outing featured Heath Ledger’s final performance before his tragic death in 2008, and Gilliam is considering quitting directing after admitting things go wrong when he makes films.
He says, “I’ve actually reached the point of not believing I’ll ever make a film again. I get easily distracted and greedy to do lots of films.
“Whenever I do that things fall apart. I used to believe I could will things into existence but now I am older I know it doesn’t work that way.”
