A very interesting read about the making of 'The Brothers Grimm'. Constant clashes with the Weinsteins about casting, a nose piece and then 3 weeks into the shoot they fire Gilliam's Dop, Nicola Pecorini and replace him with Newton Thomas Siegel, without even telling Gilliam about it. Siegel also comes across as an arrogant jerk who has a tendency to set up shots differently from how Gilliam asks him to, basically doing his own thing all the time. One cannot help but feeling sorry for Terry Gilliam. It feels very much like 'Lost in La Mancha, except that here he ends up with a film, well kind of.
