Perhaps you've never heard of filmmaker Terry Gilliam, but I assure you you soon will.
Why you ask? Simply because his latest film 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' is soon to be released, and this film will mark the last made by the great Heath Ledger.
Terry Gilliam has faced many difficulties throughout his career with getting his films financed. And this one was supposed to be a piece of cake considering Heath Ledger was attached. After all, he's coming off probably one of the most iconic performances in movie history. But in filmmaking nothing is ever a piece of cake.
To Terry Gilliam's credit he never gave up on his vision, and in the end with the help from friends Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Ferrell, he was able to finish his project that Heath Ledger had started. The story behind the making of this film is fantastic and to read more about it just click here.
