Terry was in France recently, at the Cannes Film Festival (May 11 thru 22, 2005) where he and Miramax boss Harvey Weinstein showed off about 20 minutes of Brothers Grimm on May 13. A year ago at Cannes, a few minutes of the film were shown. The release date later switched from 2004 to early this year, then late 2005, and was finally shifted back to August.
The movie is a fantasy take on the fairy-tale writers Brothers Grimm, who are depicted in this version as hucksters traveling from town to town with a reputation as fearless monster slayers, claiming they can exorcise supernatural terrors — for a fee.
The brothers get a dose of their own medicine when they encounter a true curse, complete with a forest of moving trees that hosts a 500-year-old queen (played by Monica Bellucci) who abducts young girls to steal their life energy and to preserve her beauty.
Brothers Grimm has been in post-production for some time, in part due to the divorce of the Weinstein brothers' film company, Miramax, from Disney. While the film was waiting release, Gilliam shot and completed another film, Tideland, which is due later this year.
