Terry Gilliam has admitted that he may not make any more movies.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus director said that he is experienced enough to know not to be "greedy" in the film industry.

"I've actually reached the point of not believing I'll ever make a film again," Bang Showbiz quotes him as stating. "I am reminded by my wife that I always feel like that but the great thing about getting older is your memory goes.

"I get easily distracted and greedy to do lots of films. Whenever I do that, things fall apart. I used to believe I could will things into existence but now I am older I know it doesn't work that way."

Gilliam went on to reveal that his troubled project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which has been stuck in development hell for over a decade, is still no closer to reaching the big screen.

"I just know I need to get shooting because it's been three years," he said. "Nothing is back on track. Film is difficult to get funding for unless you're doing a huge movie in 3D. [Don Quixote] just needs one more person to come in."
