Heath Ledger's "Doctor Parnassus" to Premiere at Cannes

Posted: April 30th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Heath LedgerSubmit Comment
Heath Ledger's final movie "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" has been having a tough time securing a US distributor, making many movie-goers worried that the troubled film will never appear on the big screen.

Then in February, an insider revealed that a number of US buyers were interested in acquiring stateside rights and that a deal is expected shortly.

Now, we are happy to report that "Doctor Parnassus" will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 22nd. It is expected that an acquisition will be announced soon after.

Ledger died while making "Doctor Parnassus," but Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell all stepped in to play his character Tony so the movie could be finished.

The new film tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary Imaginarium - a traveling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom.

Sounds like a great storyline. Getting into people's heads to decide on either the light or the dark side of the Force is a timeless tale.

well that's great but not everyone can be at cannes film festival to watch it....and all those other distributing companies not trying to help with this movie are heartless *ssholes!!...it's not fair to heath or his family or his fans and everything they stand for

It's ALWAYS about the $'s synthetic1985 (you know that as well as the rest of us). And you also know that as soon as someone puts their hand to this and picks it up for distribution... some bloggers will be on that Company like sh*t to a hospital blanket commenting on the exploitation of his death...ugh! There's no winning for losing in some situations. Me personally... I'm looking forward to seeing this movie and would like a Company to have the balls to pick it up and distribute.
