A spokeswoman for Jude Law has confirmed that he will be involved in finishing Heath Ledger’s role in “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”:
Stars to replace Ledger in movie
Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell will appear as Heath Ledger’s character in unfinished film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the BBC has learned.
A spokeswoman for Law confirmed the three would play the role of Tony in the film, but said she did not know how the role would be restructured.
Production on the Terry Gilliam directed film was suspended after Ledger, 28, died from a drug overdose.
Ledger had been filming scenes for the movie in London just before his death.
It is thought that original footage of Ledger will remain while Law, Depp and Farrell will play different incarnations of his character, Tony.
The fantasy film follows a travelling theatre troupe which offers audience members the chance to pass through a magical mirror to alternate dimensions.
Depp, Law, and Farrell are each expected to “become” Ledger’s character in one of these new worlds.
Law’s spokeswoman said the actor, who is on holiday, was unavailable for comment.
