There is a murmur afoot that Heath Ledger’s final movie, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR PARNASSUS may have trouble finding US distribution. The film also stars Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp and Jude Law, who stepped in to complete the role that Ledger had started.
During the summer there were several interested parties, reportedly including Lionsgate, but since, things have died down. You can read the full lowdown HERE, but the gist is the usual bullshit of ‘too experimental’ and ‘not marketable enough’ and that kind of garbage. Obviously, the most important thing to remember at this obviously difficult time (especially with that emotional speech from Ledger’s family at the Oscars) is that UK distribution is already secure, so, living over here in London, I’m ok.
Extra Tidbit: Depp, Farrell and Law donated their earnings for this movie to Ledger’s daughter Matilda.
Michael Mann’s Public Enemies was test screened on Thursday night in Sherman Oaks, CA. It was a blind screening, which means that they didn’t give the name of the film when soliciting for moviegoers. A bunch of reviews have been floating around the message boards. You can read five reviews here at /film.
I was browsing around when found a link to wonderful website of Michelle Martin, who take awesome pictures of Depp and whole cast shooting Public Enemies from Michigan and Illinois. You’ll find more than 400 exclusive pictures, and some beautiful pictures in black & white, also hundred of pictures of the set itself.
A little correction done by Michelle herself: these photos were taken between March and May of 08 in Columbus and Oshkosh, Wisconsin
Our site will be under major changes in the next weeks. I’m starting to convert the whole site to WordPress, it would be easier to mantain it and update it. But all the content will be open for access, so you don’t need to worry about it.
The Gore Verbinski – Johnny Depp reunion project Rango has already gotten some attention this week with the news that Abigail Breslin joined the cast. It looks like that cast has gotten even bigger, with Isla Fisher (Definitely, Maybe) coming aboard.
The news comes from MTV’s Movies Blog, who got to talk to Fisher during a junket for her upcoming film, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Fisher announced that she would be playing opposite Depp in the movie as the voice of a lizard Depp’s character encounters on his adventure as a household pet who… well, winds up on an adventure.
Fisher also talked about the process Verbinski is using to make the animated movie, which includes having the actors actually act out the scenes to aid the animators in portraying movement and expression. That’s not uncommon for animated movies, but Fisher seems to indicate Verbinski’s approach is a bit more elaborate, according to MTV.
Movie bosses behind Johnny Depp’s forthcoming release Public Enemies are facing an additional filming cost from the mayor of the Wisconsin county the crime thriller was shot in – after a local road collapsed as a result of the traffic diversions to accommodate shooting.
The John Dillinger biopic was filmed in Columbus in March (08) after producers were attracted to the area by the governor’s new movie incentives.
But during filming, state highway traffic had to be diverted away from the city centre and onto less congested routes – but the road, in Dodge County, could not handle the extra load and collapsed.
County officials were subsequently left with a $116,000 (£77,850) repair bill – leading to a lawsuit against Columbus city officials.
Columbus Mayor Nancy Osterhaus is now looking to split the cost with executives at movie studio
Public Enemies is scheduled for release in summer 2009. (c) WENN
