The New Terry Gilliam Film will Feature Several Big Name Actors

Jeff Bridges will play God, and Johnny Depp Satan

The new Terry Gilliam film titled The Carnival at the End of Days will feature several big name actors, including Johnny Depp, Jeff Bridges, Adam Driver, and Jason Momoa.

Gilliam confirmed the news in a recent interview with the French publication Premiere, in which he explained the film’s premise: “God decides to destroy humanity, and the only one trying to save us is Satan because he needs people in hell, otherwise he won’t have a job for eternity.” Depp and Bridges are set to play Satan and God, respectively.

According to Terry Gilliam, production on the new film is expected to begin in January 2025.

“It will be very funny for those who like to be offended,” Gilliam said. Elsewhere, he expanded on what he has in mind for Bridge’s God character. “He will not be the God we are used to,” he said. “In the film, God is nature, but a nature that can talk to you. I’m going to need animation to bring it to life, because in the scene with God, there are at least fifteen animals. It’s going to be complicated, because it has to be realistic. And it’s going to be very expensive!”

Terry Gilliam’s last directed feature was 2018’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a film he was trying to make for more than two decades. It came and went without much fanfare, and received mixed reviews amongst audiences and critics alike.
