THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS Struggling To Secure Release

Heath Ledger In The Imaginarium of Doctor ParnassusThe Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” directed by Terry Gilliam (former Monty Python star), which cost $20m to make was finished in August last year. But the “fantastic” tale is struggling to find a buyer and secure a US distribution deal. Despite the huge publicity and big-name cast, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell,  negotiations with several prospective commercial partners are ongoing, but no release date has been set. One concern among buyers may be the film’s complicated synopsis, involving a surreal contest between the 1,000-year-old Dr Parnassus (played by Christopher Plummer) and the devil (known as Mr Nick, and played by Tom Waits). Ledger’s character, Tony, is a mysterious outsider who apparently travels through a dream world. If Gilliam cannot find a distributor willing to pay the going rate for rights to screen it in cinemas, Heath Ledger’s final film,”The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” will go straight to DVD.
