Doctor Parnassus's Imaginarium

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an upcoming fantasy film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown. The film follows the leader of a travelling theatre troupe who, having made a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.

Christopher PlummerTom Waits, and Heath Ledger star in the film, though Ledger's death 1/3 of the way through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended. Ledger's role was recast with Johnny DeppJude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger's character Tony as he travels through a dream world. 

I can't wait to see this, as research for my independent project aims to understand the importance of the imagination.
