Heath Ledger’s final film, called The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, is finished but looking for financial supporters to bring it to theaters, WENN reports. At this moment, the film is eyeing a limited release because they’re having such a hard time finding said financial supporters, which I find a little bit surprising because it is Ledger’s final film, and there is also the gimmick of the lead actor’s part being played by Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.
The film’s execs have reportedly been searching for six months for financial support, but have struggled because of the economy and also because the movie is described by WENN as “experimental,” which could very well mean that it stinks.
In The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, Ledger plays a traveling magician.
Stay tuned, I guess, but in the meantime, one has to wonder if it’s a smart thing to release this film with Americans’ lasting memory of Heath Ledger as The Joker? I’m pretty happy with how he bowed out. Are you?
