Terry Gilliam's New Film Searches for the Meaning of Life

Terry Gilliam is making a new film entitled The Zero Theorem. If you're not excited already, you should be. Gilliam doesn't work quickly, but his work has generally been brilliant. Gilliam's films, to date, have included Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the Imaginarium of Doctor Pernassus among others. He was also JK Rowling's first choice to direct the Harry Potter films, an idea the studio shot down.
