CANNES, France, May 9 (Reuters) - A Paris court ruled on Wednesday that Terry Gilliam’s movie “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” can be shown at the Cannes Film Festival, according to the film’s Twitter account.
“We are delighted to announce that @TerryGilliam and his film #TheManWhoKilledDonQuixote will be at @Festival_Cannes on May 19th for the closing film of the festival. The judge said YES,” a tweet said, referring to a hearing at a court in Paris brought by former producer Paulo Branco.
The film, directed by former Monty Python member Gilliam, has been the subject of a long legal dispute brought by Branco over who owns the rights to it. (Reporting by Robin Pomeroy; Editing by Angus MacSwan and Catherine Evans)
