RIVER PHOENIX’S Last Film Will Be Released 18 Years Later

Eighteen years ago River Phoenix died of a heart attack on Halloween night outside the Viper Room in Los Angeles.

At the time of Phoenix’s death he was filming Dark Blood with director George Sluzier. After Phoenix’s death, Sluzier took the footage and hid it fearing it would get destroyed.

Now, THR is reporting that the director has re-edited the footage and thinks with a few adjustments (using voice over) he can now deliver a final cut of the film for release next year.


Sluzier, best know for Spoorloos (remade as The Vanishing starring Kiefer Sutherland and Jeff Bridges) said he plans to ask Phoenix’s brother Joaquin to do the voice over work that he needs to finish the film, stating “The voices of both brothers are very much alike.” Through the years Sluzier has stayed in touch with the Phoenix family.

Dark Blood follows a hermit (Phoenix) who lives on a nuclear testing site and is waiting for the end of the world. When a Hollywood couple (Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis) arrives to find shelter, he starts a troubled relationship with the wife.

River Phoenix died at the early age of 23, before his death he was one of the most in-demand actors working in Hollywood. He starred in many acclaimed films such as: Stand By Me, Dogfight, My Own Private Idaho, The Mosquito Coast, and Sneakers. He was nominated for a best actor Oscar for his role in Sidney Lumet’s Running On Empty… which is a great film and is currently streaming on Netflix.
