Terry Gilliam's 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' is to open in Italy and Germany on September 27.

The long-awaited drama movie - which stars the likes of Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko and Stellan Skarsgard - had its initial release at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and is now set to open in two of Europe's biggest markets later this month.

Terry announced the news on Twitter, writing part of his post in Italian: ''Buon giorno, Italia.. finalmente!! L'UOMO CHE UCCISE DON CHISCOTTE si apre 27 settembre! For non Italian speakers, I think you can work out what that says. And like Rome, the film wasn't built in a day! (sic)''

Terry - who is a former member of the Monty Python comedy troupe - has been working on the movie for almost 20 years, but he has faced a number of logistical and legal battles to bring it to cinema screens.

The issues have, in fact, already been detailed in documentary called 'Lost in La Mancha'.

However, in 2017, Terry made the shock announcement that he'd finally finished the project with a new cast - but a producer then sued him over the rights to the movie.

A French court subsequently dismissed that claim and 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' finally made its debut at the annual film festival in Cannes.
