    "The Brothers Grimm" - After its initial delay from Nov' 04 to Feb '05, its now been pushed back many months more to a Nov' 05 date - a full year from its initial date.

    Monica Bellucci is playing the evil queen of the forest in Terry Gilliam's BROTHERS GRIMM movie. Bellucci's character is a sorceress who kidnaps virgins to harvest their blood so she can stay forever young and beautiful.

    Matt Damon and Heath Ledger play the two Grimm siblings who are actually con artists, duping simple townsfolk into believing they're the Middle Ages equivalent of the Ghostbusters. The brothers are called to the task when they investigate the haunted forest where Bellucci's character resides. The film was originally scheduled for a mid- or fall 2004 opening.

    Terry Gilliam's movies have a history of being pushed back, delayed or even cancelled due to production difficulties. 'Lost in La Mancha' is a documentary of his failed attempt at a Don Quixote film starring Johnny Depp.

    Gilliam starting work on 'Tideland' despite delays on Brothers Grimm

    Terry Gilliam (Brothers Grimm, 12 Monkeys) is prepping his next project, an adaptation of Mitch Cullin's macabre novel Tideland, according to today's Variety.

    Gilliam has held the rights to Tideland for some time, but is just now getting funding for the project. Actress Jennifer Tilly and 9-year-old newcomer Jodelle Ferland have been cast in Tideland Gilliam is due to start shooting later this month in Saskatchewan, Canada.

    Cullin's novel tells the story of 11-year-old Jeliza-Rose, a young girl who escapes the grim reality of her rural Texas life by retreating into her own disturbed imagination. Jeliza is accompanied on her adventures by four disembodied doll heads that she places on her fingertips. The trade says that the doll heads will be voiced by well-known actors.

    Gilliam says of the book: "Beautifully written. Perfectly paced. Sad. Magical. Funny. Excellent woodworking... images kept tumbling off the page and into my eyeline – beautifully, clearly, spookily."

    Gilliam adapted the novel for the screen along with Tony Grisoni.

    THR adds that Janet McTeer (Tumbleweeds) and Brendan Fletcher (Freddy vs. Jason) also have joined the cast.
