following on from the untimely death of Heath Ledger, the producers of Terry Gilliam’s new movie The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus faced the difficult decision of re-casting the the role that Ledger was playing, and which was two thirds of the way through its production when Ledger was found dead in his apartment last month.
so, following some intelligence on their part, the role of Ledger won’t be replaced by any one actor. part of the movie will involed Ledger’s character going through magical mirrors into different worlds. and its when he’s in these different worlds, Ledger’s character will be played by three different actors:
– Johnny Depp
– Colin Farrell
– Jude Law
good times, non? hopefully it’ll be better than the last Ledger/Gilliam team-up The Brothers Grimm, but at the very least, it should play a suitable epitath to a great actor of our times.
