Parnassus site live

As you all know, Terry Gilliam's latest film THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS stopped production due to the tragic and sudden death of one if its stars, Heath Ledger. There was rampant speculation on whether or not filming would ever resume, and rumours surfaced that Johnny Depp might replace Ledger or that Gilliam might use a form of CGI to complete Ledger's role.

Today we have a sure sign that PARNASSUS will eventually resume production as its official website has gone live. There's not much there now, just the film's title, the director's name, and the all-important and very telling 'coming soon' tag. Quick Stop Entertainment says that production will indeed continue, if anything to honour Ledger's final performance. They also mention something rather disturbing: that "shady parties" are trying to paint THE DARK KNIGHT as Ledger's final role. Whatever. I'm just glad that it looks like we'll be able to see Ledger's final performance sooner or later.

whew! for a moment there i though this would turn into another unfinished gilliam project ala "man of la mancha" (check out the documentary "lost in la mancha" if you haven't already). i tell ya, gilliam always has the hardest time making films - you'd think he was cursed. thank god they always turn out so good...

the final performance

Completed or not PARNASSUS will be Heath's last performance as an actor, that was the last work he did after TDK, today, he's still known as the gay Cowboy in Brokeback Mountain, but after TDK he will always (I think) be remembered as TDK JOKER. I'm looking foward to see both of these films.

I think yo u can look at it both ways TDK was his last COMPLETED role, and TIODP (god, that sounds like a drug...) is his last role period.

i agree with Vnqshr

These movies look great not because of heath passing, but because as an actor he was able to deliver performances that made you say, "Dam, thats acting"

To be completely honest, after the awful media frenzy surrounding Ledger's death, I'm not bothered whether people are talking about Dark Knight as if it's his last role. That said, I'm looking forward to both Dark Knight and Dr. Parnassus, both very different roles and films, and look forward to seeing what Heath has done with them.
