“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
” is not quite finished yet but a post-production teaser/behind the scenes video for Terry Gilliam
‘s Dr. Parnassus has arrived online (via Quick Stop Entertainment).
“The film begins in modern London. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) is a thousand years old. Parnassus as the power to expand your mind beyond anything you’ve ever dreamed of. For centuries he’s been traveling the planet with his traveling theater, The Imaginarium. Parnassus is a prophet, he has a secret he made once long ago with the devil, and that secret will possibly destroy all their lives or possibly save them. It depends on who they meet … and who they meet is a man named Tony (Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Jude Law), hanging from a bridge in London. They save his life. Is he there to save them? Or is he working for the devil? These are the things we unravel as the story unfolds.”
The film should be arriving at theaters sometime in 2009.
