Ledger’s Last Film To Hit Cannes
Its nice to see it will get a place in a film festival, to get it out there nice and early.
The film Heath Ledger was making when he died last year is set to premiere at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in France after becoming a last-minute screening.
Film fans and the media are expected to flock to Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus when it opens on the eve of a day of publicity on 22 May.
The film will not be among those competing for film festival prizes.
As well as Ledger, the film features Christopher Plummer, Verne Troyer, Lily Cole and Tom Waits and Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law, who stepped in to complete the tragic actor’s scenes.
Ledger died from an accidental drug overdose in January 2008.
