Gilliam and Ledger Reteam on Doctor Parnassus


Director Terry Gilliam will reteam with his Brothers Grimm star Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight) on The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus for Samuel Hadida’s Davis Film, says Variety.

Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield and Verne Troyer round out the cast.

The film is a modern-day fantasy adventure that centers on Dr. Parnassus (Plummer), who has the gift of guiding the imaginations of others.

With his traveling theater troupe, Parnassus offers audience members the chance to transcend reality by passing through a magical mirror.

Gilliam wrote the screenplay with writing partner Charles McKeown.

Shooting will begin in December in London and then move to Vancouver.
