I'm having the exact same issue and found other threads about it. Most tell you to try and delete iMovie preferences but this didn't fix my problem. I even deleted iMovie, rebooted and re-downloaded iMovie from the App Store and still the same.
This happens with iPhoto pictures as well as pics I drag from Finder to iMovie.
MacBook Air 13.3 (mid-2011) I bought yesterday with Lion and all updates installed.
My first Mac... This isn't a good start

Same issue here, sometimes closing and opening imovies worked. Also some photos that have been enhanced in iphoto had this issue, reverting the image back to original sometimes fixed it. But really disappointing.

I know that some fixes only work for some people but I have had multiple problems with pics and iMovie 11. My work around will probably only work for those who can add pics to one project but not another. If you have a corrupted project and can't add stills then start a new project with the same settings and add all the photos you want in your other project. Keep them atleast 1 second long and in the order you want them in your other project for your own convenience. Make any adjustments here and export the movie at max quality. Then import the published Picture movie as an event. You now have all your pics formatted safely as video. Next scroll through each pic/2 finger click/select: add still to project. Each still will add to the bottom of your corrupted project and will use far less memory/heap zone erors than ever before. Publish and enjoy!
Hope it works for you!
