This is the movie Heath Ledger was making when he died. To complete the movie, director Terry Gilliam enlisted Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law to finish his part. The film didn’t do much domestically, maybe because Gilliam’s surreal sensibility plays better internationally than in North America. The movie did much better internationally, specifically in Italy. The film’s distributor said it’s because Italian teens love Terry Gilliam. I kind of have a hard time seeing Italian teens screaming for Gilliam like he’s Harry Styles, but it’s what the guy said.
