Gilliam/Ledger film news from Cannes by canaveralgumby on 22 May 2009 4:18pm

This is a touchy area. A film maker can really screw up an attempt to complete a flim when an actor had passed on mid-production. An extreme example is the NON-Bruce Lee "Game of Death. HOPE it worked out!

I appreciate that Terry Gilliam has made a brave attempt to finish his film "THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS" both as a mark of respect for the work Heath Ledger had already done on it (and was--as they say--'in the can'),and also for Heath Ledger's family,so that they can see Heath's last film up on the screen.
Even it the end result is not perfect,I believe it was better for Terry to try to finish it than just stopping production and having it scrapped.
