River Phoenix - River Phoenix's Final Film To Debut In Holland

Tragic actor River Phoenix's final film is to debut at the upcoming Netherlands Film Festival - 19 years after his death.
The star was shooting a movie with Dutch director George Sluizer at the time of his death and the filmmaker has recently completed work on the abandoned film, titled Dark Blood.
In the movie, which also features Jeremy Irons, Phoenix played a man living on a nuclear test site in the desert, awaiting the end of the world.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Sluizer hid the footage after Phoenix's death, fearing people might try to destroy it, but he has since re-edited the film and he'll be presenting it in competition at the Netherlands Film Festival on 27 September (12).
Phoenix collapsed and died of drug-induced heart failure on the sidewalk outside the nightclub The Viper Room in Hollywood on 31 October, 1993.
