Gilliam's Return Brings Christoph Waltz in For 'Zero Theorem'

Not sure what excites me more, the thought of Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz handing out justice in the upcoming Django Unchained or a return to film making by the great Terry Gilliam.  Three years since his last movie (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) is too long of a wait.  So I'm beyond pleased to pass along news today that Gilliam has a new project in the works, Zero Theorem and has enlisted the Oscar-winning Waltz to star, Deadline reports. 

Waltz will play a computer genius named Leth, whose day to day life is spent trying to discover our purpose of existenceThe setting for Pat Rushin's script will take place in an "Orwellian corporate world where “mancams” serve as the eyes of a shadowy figure known only as Management."  I love it.  Zero Theorem sounds so Gilliam, and reminds me a tiny bit of one my favorites of his Twelve Monkeys

We don't have a release date yet, though it's reported that Gilliam is currently in Romania deeply involved in pre-production for the film with production expected to start as early as October.  This will also be the next role for Waltz following Django Unchained, which we'll see in theaters on Christmas day. 

I'll chalk this up as another Gilliam film I'm dying to see, as a long time fan of his work.  Who knows I may one day add Zero Theorem to my shelf, lining it up next to Twelve Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Fisher King

Sounds like he's going back to the well of 'Brazil'. I think after Heath Ledger's death on 'Parnassuss' investors are really scared of the bad luck that happens on his movies. He's tried some really new things and frankly, still not had much luck. ('Brothers Grimm', Tideland', he STILL can't get "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote) I think Harvey Wienstein called him on that impish schoolboy act he always plays with 'Brothers Grimm', and he's found out the last decade it's a new business than it was in the 80's. I don't think he has many more in him, although I DO hope he can pull off a few more great ones. If he can make a 'Brazil' for THIS era then great. But if it's just him repeating himself to hang on to past glory, I'd rather he fade out gracefully.
