Gilliam Leaving Good Omens for Grimm
Producer Charles Roven told Sci Fi Wire that director Terry Gilliam will leave Good Omens, which he was previously directing for Roven, to helm The Brothers Grimm. “I think Terry will unofficially detach, at least for the time being, from Good Omens and let Renaissance try to make that movie with another creative team,” Roven said in an interview.

Grimm mixes fantasy and history to tell the story of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the famous fairy-tale brothers. The script was drafted by Ehren Kruger, but Roven said Gilliam would add his own perspective to the film. “He will definitely give it the Gilliam-esque spin, and I think it’ll be a feast visually,” he said. “It’s a terrific story and definitely underscores how important believing in miracles…believing in fairy tales…is to everyday life.”

Gilliam’s last film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, fell apart weeks into production. But Roven is confident he can bounce back with Grimm. “I think this one is sort of on the downhill leg of at least getting into production,” he said. Roven added that he hopes to begin production in June.

Good Omens is based on the fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
