It seems like the rumors may have been confirmed: Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell will each fill in for Heath Ledger in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Cinematical reports via Ain’t It Cool News, the insidery movie and comics blog that broke the scoop early this morning. The film was still in production when Mr. Ledger died on Jan. 22 of what has been ruled an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, leaving questions as to how filming would be completed. Now, it looks like Mr. Ledger’s character will appear alternately as himself, Mr. Depp, Mr. Law and Mr. Farrell at different points in the movie, a “fantastical” story about a traveling showman who’s made a deal with the devil. More from Cinematical after the jump.
