In this undated photo provided by the Miami International Film Festival, actor River Phoenix is shown while filming the movie “Dark Blood.” After his death, there was talk of finding another actor to replace Phoenix or using special effects to finish the film which was about 80 percent complete, but director George Sluizer ultimately passed on those options and the film footage sat untouched in a vault for years. Sluizer was diagnosed with an arrhythmia in 2007, but the director made a miraculous recovery and felt compelled to finish “Dark Blood” before it was too late. The film had its U.S. premiere at the Miami International Film Festival on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 in Miami. (AP Photo/Miami International Film Festival)
