Heath Ledger's final film to screen at Hamptons Film Festival

Posted on

Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which features Heath Ledger’s final performance, will make its U.S. premiere at the Hamptons Film Festival Oct. 11, Variety reports. Ledger had shot only the “real world” scenes in the film before he died on Jan. 22, 2008, so Gilliam cast Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to play his role in each of the different worlds where his character travels. Parnassus made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and will play at the Toronto Film Festival this month.
