Movie Fact #870 – October 29th, 2015:

During an appearance on “The Directors”, available on the 2-Disc DVD for director Terry Gilliam’s 1981 British fantasy film “Time Bandits”, Gilliam said he wanted to do the 1991 American comedy-drama film “The Fisher King” because he was tired of doing big budget special effects films, such as his previous film, the 1988 British adventure fantasy comedy film “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen”, which went over budget and cost over $45 million, nearly twice as much as the budget of “The Fisher King” which was only $24 million.

Also, this was the first film Gilliam directed in which he was not involved in writing the screenplay, as well as his first film not to feature any other members of Monty Python. However, it is Gilliam’s second film involving the Holy Grail, the first being the 1975 British comedy film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.
