Terry Gilliam and Christoph Waltz doing The Zero Theorem


Terry Gilliam, the former “Monty Python”-er turned big-time film director (“Twelve Monkeys”, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”), has announced his next flick over at Facebook. The film’s leading man will be none other than the in-demand ‘Basterd’ Christoph Waltz.

Announcement! I’m heading of to Bucharest to start work on my new film, The Zero Theorem. It stars everybody’s favorite Nazi, the great Christoph Waltz. Very original script about a man waiting for a telephone call that will give meaning to his life. Some other things happen as well. It’s profound and funny in more or less equal measures. We’re going to have fun. I’ll keep you posted as the cast expands

Gilliam’s last film was “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”, starring the late Heath Ledger, released in 2010.

Waltz next appears in this Christmas’s “Django Unchained” for Quentin Tarantino.
