The world premiere of one of the most cursed films in cinema history, scheduled to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, was thrown into serious doubt Wednesday when it was hit by a new legal challenge.Producer Paulo Branco claims that the film, with "Star Wars" actor Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce, is "illegal" and that his Alfama films rather than Gilliam owns the rights to it."We could end up with the closing film [of the festival] at risk of being canceled," he told AFP Tuesday.Less than 24 hours later he filed a legal bid to stop the film being shown without Alfama films' permission.Juan Branco strongly denied this and said the film could only be released if Gilliam reached an agreement with his father.
