Director Terry Gilliam has a process lost to the Paris Court of Appeal against Paolo Brancon, the former producer of his film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. That reports Screen Daily. Gilliam must also pay a fine of 10,000 euros to Alfama Films, the company of Branco.

Previously won Gilliam already has a legal fight against Branco to the film premiere to be let go at the Cannes film Festival. “The film is illegally made,” says the producer now. “I have, for the first time so many people to see, to contribute to a film whose rights had not.’ Branco holds all employees responsible, but also the people who the film distributed in France and to Cannes brought.

Gilliam himself has not yet responded. For him and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, it is already a new obstacle. The making of the film drag for more than twenty years.
