Heath Ledger’s Final Role to Be Finished by Three Actors

February 18th, 2008 // 6 Comments

Heath Ledger’s role of Tony in Terry Gilliam’s film, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” is going to be tackled by three different actors. Jude Law’s rep confirmed that Jude, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp, would be stepping in to help finish the film by taking on Heath’s role and picking up where he left off at the time of his untimely death.

It’s still unclear exactly how the actors will be filling in the holes, with the BBC theorizing that Gilliam will use the footage of Ledger that was already shot before his death and the other actors will be portraying different versions of Tony. The $30 million film suspended production at the news of Heath’s passing.

    That’s an interesting trio…

  2. Actually the way its going to work is this.

    In the story, Tony chases the Devil (played by Tom Waits) into a mirror and into three separate fantasy worlds. Now Heath Ledger had already shot the “real world” portion of the film and was about to begin work on the green-screened “mirror worlds” portion at the time of his death. The way these three actors will figure in is that each one will portray a different “mirror world” incarnation of the character as though each world reflects a certain aspect of Tony’s personality.
