As a Halloween surprise, director Terry Gilliam‘s short film The Legend Of Hallowdega starring David Arquette and Justin Kirk has been released online. I saw a preview of this during New York Comic-Con and thought it was a complete joke, but it turns out it is a real film and you can seen the entire 18 minutes and 11 seconds of proof below via the official site. Featuring appearances by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Darrell Waltrip the short was shot on location in Charlotte, NC and at Talladega Superspeedway.
Gilliam also recently directed the Arcade Fire performance from Madison Square Garden this summer. Funding for his continually failed project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has also recently collapsed so it may be awhile before we something else from this director.
