Gilliam pic closes Hamptons fest

'Parnassus' to premeire at festival October 11

Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” featuring the final perf by the late Heath Ledger, will have its U.S. preem at the 17th annual Hamptons Film Festival, closing the event on Oct. 11.

Opening this year’s edition on Oct. 8 will be Shana Feste’s debut feature “The Greatest,” starring Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan.

Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s pic “Solitary Man,” starring Danny DeVito, Sarandon, Mary-Louise Parker, Jesse Eisenberg and Jenna Fischer, will screen on Oct. 10 as the centerpiece film.

Ledger had finished shooting only the “real world” scenes in Gilliam’s fantasy film when he died on Jan. 22 of last year. In order to complete the movie, Gilliam enlisted Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to play Ledger’s part — one actor for each of the different worlds to which his character travels.

Pic had its world preem at Cannes and will play at the Toronto Film Festival this month as well.

The Hamptons fest runs Oct. 8-12.
