Terry Gilliam’s Stuck Moment as a Fuzzy Forecaster

| October 18, 2011

His stuck moment: During the filming of “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” the star, Heath Ledger, passed away, leaving Gilliam with only one third of the movie complete.

He imagines success: Gilliam reimagined the lead role, inviting Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to sign on as three-way replacements for Ledger’s character.

Unstuck result: The film was well-received at Cannes and was nominated for two Academy Awards—best art direction and best costume design.
