River Phoenix's final film Dark Blood never saw the light of day, but now Dutch film director George Sluizer has announced that he's going to finish it for release in 2012.
Sluizer has already re-edited original footage from the 1993 drama film, and he believes that it can be ready for release next year with a few adjustments, as well as the addition of voice over…possibly by River's brother Joaquin Phoenix.
