River Phoenix's Final Film "Dark Blood" May Hit Theaters Next Year

Posted: October 19th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
River PhoenixSubmit Comment
Eighteen years after the death of actor River Phoenix (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Stand By Me), Dutch director George Sluizer (The Vanishing) revealed that he will finish "Dark Blood," the 1993 drama that Phoenix was shooting when he died of a heart attack on Halloween night outside the Viper Room in Los Angeles.

After the actor's death, apparently of a drug overdose, Sluizer took "Dark Blood" footage and hid it out of fear that it would be destroyed. He has now re-edited the material and believes that with some voice over work, he can deliver a final cut of the film for release next year. He will ask Joaquin Phoenix to provide the voice of his brother.

In "Dark Blood," Phoenix plays a hermit living in the desert on a nuclear testing site as he waits for the end of the world. When a Hollywood jet-set couple (played by Judy Davis and Jonathan Pryce) arrives to find shelter, he begins a troubled relationship with the wife.

I think it'd be best left untouched. It worked in Heath Ledger's case because the movie's plot allowed for it, but I don't think it could work for this.

He's been dead for almost two decades and now George Sluizer needs a payday. Disgusting.

It is very sad that he died young but why now?

It is useless to release River's final film after 18 years later.

I am not being sad but some people wouldn't know who he is and wouldn't care about the film.
