Thanks to the success of Brokeback Mountain, Heath Ledger's new independent film, Candy got picked up by ThinkFilm.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heath and Abbie Cornish play Bohemian artists whose passion for each other is matched by a growing passion for heroin. Geoffrey Rush plays a wealthy man who enables their addiction.

The film is based on a novel by Luke Davies, which he helped develop with first time director, Neil Armfield. Candy will hit theaters this fall.
