(VARIETY VIA AIN’T IT COOL NEWS) β€” Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell have signed on to play Heath Ledger’s role in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the Terry Gilliam movie Ledger had been filming when he suddenly died last month. In Parnassus, a fantasy film, Ledger’s character Tony is transported to three different dimensions; Depp, Law, and Farrell will play the role in each of those new worlds. No word yet on when production will resume, although it’s still on track for a 2009 release. (Variety via Ain’t It Cool News)
