The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Quote :
The production was in progress when it had to be suspended due to the death of one of its principal stars, Heath Ledger, on January 22, 2008. Prior to the suspension of production, Christopher Plummer and Tom Waits were co-starring with Ledger in a story about the leader of a traveling theater troupe who, through a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations. Production began on the film in December 2007, but Heath Ledger's unexpected death in January 2008 led Gilliam to suspend production on the film while he determines if and how he might "salvage" the film. The projected release date for this film was previously announced for 2009

And the plot looked nice again Crying or Very sad

In the present day, immortal 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Plummer) leads a traveling theater troupe that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession. Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil (Waits), who now comes to collect on the arrangement, targeting the doctor's daughter (Lily Cole). The troupe, who is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (Ledger), embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl.

Do you know if it is sure yet?
I also heard rumours that Johhny Depp would replace him, or that maybe it would be done with CGI.

Ok, it seems to be quite unsure
Some sites announce that it's off, some say it still go on, some say the official site is down but it says "coming soon"
http://www.doctorparnassus.com/
But it all depends how much he filmed already cause with one of the main character dead, that sucks!
Anyway, let's hope then

Topic moved to the pre-preduction part (for now)

Dont give up Terry cheers

If production started somewhere in December, I don't think they have a filmed material yet...

Well apparently, he already started filming but because the main character has to go in a parallel world, then he could maybe change character with maybe Johnny Depp
But these are just rumors so we just have to wait
Very Happy

Hollywood's finest may finish filming on Heath Ledger's final flick

A host of famous faces are said to have stepped forward to star in The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, the film the late Heath Ledger was lensing at the time of his death.

Hollywood stars Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell have all been linked to the Terry Gilliam fantasy flick. The movie tells the tale of a travelling circus troupe who, through a deal with the devil, take members of their audience through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.

Since Heath's role involved him falling through the magic mirror four times, the actors may appear as different parts of his character.

Director Terry, who also worked with Heath on The Brothers Grimm, has fought to save the production since the actor's death last month.

"He very much wants to go on with the movie," revealed Christopher Plummer, who stars in the title role. "I can very much understand why Ė because he wants to dedicate it to Heath, of course."

Note that Terry Gilliam is struggling finding a distributor
Which is very weird considering the amazing casting of this movie
They dont trust him at all and Tideland was apparently not the best success in terms of cinema entries. So they all seem to have cold feet

The Gilliam malediction continues Laughing

First critics from the cannes festival, I will try to translate one of them

Positive: Terry Gilliam finds its magic inspiration back. The imagination is the king in this work which has an unbelievable visual richness. The actors are amazing and the changes of characters for Heath Ledger are nicelly done. Master Terry is back with an amazing fairy tell which has all elements of his previous work from Monty Python, Brazil to Muchausen

Smile

Negative:
We would like that it would last longer (only negative critic I could find Very Happy )
