Alfama Films Production has applied for a court injunction to keep 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' from screening at the film festival.

AceShowbiz - Terry Gilliam's ill-fated "Don Quixote" film is facing yet another legal hiccup before it can premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. The movie has been blighted by financial issues, casting problems, and legal woes ever since the filmmaker started the project almost two decades ago, and now there's one more hurdle to clamber over.

A French movie production company has applied for a court injunction to keep "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" from screening at Cannes. Alfama Films Production executives claim they own the rights to the movie, and they haven't given their consent for the film to open at the festival.

Their application to stop the film's debut will be heard on May 7, a day before the launch of the festival. Gilliam's film, starring Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce, is scheduled to close the festival.
