Is Terry Gilliam Currently In Production On Something Called The Legend Of Talladega?

This is very, very odd. I feel like I’m looking at a ghost. It’s standing right there, I can look it in the eye… but every cell in my body is telling me something’s not right, something’s not real.

The actress Becky Fly, last seen in The Last Exorcism, has spoken to The Jackson Sun in Tennessee about her upcoming projects. She’s not only sealed a deal to take a minor role in The Help, Tate Taylor’s movie of the bestselling novel, she’s apparently also involved in a new Terry Gilliam project called The Legend of Talladega.

Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, here are some quotes from the paper:

Her agent Josh Robbins of BNA Talent Group called to share the latest news. Fly was driving to Talladega on Friday to shoot a documentary film titled Legend of Talladega, directed by Terry Gilliam, who made the Monty Python movies.

“She’s playing a construction worker,” said Robbins.

[Fly said] “I can’t wait to meet Terry Gilliam, who’s one of the Monty Python gang. I really worked on my lines. I taped myself in front of my kids in class. I had to make up a ghost story about Talladega.”

It sounds like a mockumentary, not a documentary. Has even Gilliam has succumbed to that most wobbly of subgenres?

But mockumentaries can be filmed with the smallest, lightest crew, and with the quickest turnaround, so perhaps this explains why we haven’t heard of the project, and how come Gilliam can fit one into his schedule ahead of next Spring’s The Damnation of Faust at the ENO.

But still… something about this is niggling me. I’m going to send some e-mails…
