A new website for the Terry Gilliam film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus launched today with the assuring words: Coming Soon. At this time, the site only contains the title and the name of the director. To view the site,
The state of production on The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has been up in the air ever since Heath Ledger's untimely death. This website serves as a good indicator that The Dark Knight will not be Ledger's last film, as some are making it out to be. While there hasn't been an official statement, many speculate that another actor, such as the often-rumored Johnny Depp, will step in to shoot those scenes that were not yet completed before Heath passed away.
The film was originally scheduled for a 2009 release date. The film may be held until at least 2010.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus was released December 25th, 2009 and stars Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Heath Ledger, Christopher Plummer, Jude Law, Lily Cole, Peter Stormare, Tom Waits. The film is directed by Terry Gilliam.
