River Phoenix: Dark Blood to be Released in US

River Phoenix's final film movie Dark Blood is set to hit theaters all over the United States more than two decades after it was put on hold. The reason for the lacuna was the unexpected and tragic death of its main protagonist River Phoenix. 

He passed away due to a drug overdose. The year was 1993 when the movie’s shooting was stopped dead in its tracks. But now it is being unearthed and is about to get shown to an American audience. 

The sales company Cinemavault announced Friday in Cannes that Lionsgate will distribute Dark Blood all across United States. Besides, the making of a film is as interesting as (if not more so than) its script. 

Cinemavault said in a statement, "The story behind the making of a film can be as intriguing as the film itself."

Dark Blood made it through despite the drug-fuelled death of its lead actor. There were other incidents such as the annihilation of the footage and a diseased director, George Sluizer. Yet the movie has lived to see the light of day. 

The movie takes place in the Utah Desert. A Hollywood couple find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere and only River Phoenix who is a widower can help them. 

River Phoenix was on the rise as regards his popularity when the movie was made. More than two-thirds of the movie had been wrapped up when Phoenix took all those drugs and died. 

At that time of course it would have been unwise to have continued with the production. The director of the film, Sluizer was absolutely despondent upon learning of Phoenix’s death. But he also wanted to finish the movie someday. 

"I was so sad about River's death that I nearly wanted to quit my profession," Sluizer told The Times. "On the other hand, I was also angry that we could not finish the movie."

He later on got a hold of the footage. Only years later did he dare to touch the topic of showing it to an audience. He snipped and clipped the film footage and finally today it is ready for the theatres and cinemas.

And while Dark Blood may not be the perfect movie after the death of its star attraction, it will still revive memories of a young lad named River Phoenix who was at his peak at the time the film was shot.
