While it may not have a U.S. distributor yet, Terry Gilliam’s latest movie, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” could get a big boost next month when it debuts at the annual Cannes film festival.
The movie features the final peformance by actor Heath Ledger before his untimely death last year. Ledger had only completed about half of his scheduled shooting for the film before his death. However, the movie did feature a way that three fellow actors, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law, could step in and complete the scenes for him.
The film has struggled to find a U.S. distributor, as we previously reported on Slice of SciFi. However, with a debut at Cannes, this could help the film find a distributor and a release date.
