This movie seems to be completely cloaked in mystery. So here are a few stills to shed some light on it. Though we still only know the basic out line of the story, this gives us a better idea of what Director Terry Gilliam has in mind visually. This cast looks simply amazing in this theatrical/cabaret garb. Not only are we presented with four A-list actors to portray one fellow (i.e. Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law as “Tony”), but we also have some bad-ass actors in supporting roles.
For example, Tom Waits (musical genius) is the perfect man to play the devilish character of Mr. Nick. Who else can speak with a voice made of smoke? And veteran film actor Christopher Plummer as the elder Dr. Parnassus! Being that this was Heath Ledger’s last film, I’m sure tons of people will be lining up to see it; that aside, these photos have sparked an increased interest for me.
Here are some still from Terry Gilliam’s Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus:
