What's the deal? 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, and maybe because people were too sad about losing a talent like Ledger to see this.
The movie did much better internationally, and had a huge bow in Italy. The film's distributor there said it's because A) fans wanted to see Ledger and the stars who helped finish his role, and B) 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, so 🤷.
