Default "Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" struggling to find an American distributor

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...t-1635149.html

The movie may go straight to DVD in the US. With the amount of trash out there I find this really sad. How can a film with the following names attached

Terry Gilliam
Heath Ledger
Johnny Depp
Colin Farrell
Jude Law

... not find a release? I know 'Tideland' was a piece of **** but I hope this situation gets resolved.

I had read that the movie companies said that with the movie having such a weird concept they wouldn't know how to market it.

Those names alone give it the potential to be awesome, especially Terry Gilliam,

Interesting concept too. Hopefully it gets picked up soon.

To be screened at Cannes

I had forgotten about this until now. It looks mighty cool, with Ledger, Depp, Law, and Farrell all taking up different "versions" of the same character. I'm officially excited.
