"The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," Heath Ledger's last film, will move forward with a trio of A-list actors taking over for the deceased star.
According to Ain't It Cool News, which even scooped trade heavyweight Variety, Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell will play Tony in the Terry Gilliam-directed feature.
The plot revolves around a man (Ledger) who discovers three mirrors, each of which transport him into a different dimension. Law, Depp and Farrell will play the character in those other dimensions.
"Imaginarium," which also stars Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield and Verne Troyer, is intended for a 2009 release. It's unclear when the movie will resume production.
Ledger was found dead from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in his Manhattan apartment on Jan. 22.
Depp, up for an Oscar for "Sweeney Todd," will shoot Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" next.
Most recently seen in "Sleuth," Law has "My Blueberry Nights" and "Repossession Mambo" on tap.
If you live in the right places, you can currently see Farrell in "Cassandra's Dream" and "In Bruge." He's already completed work on the 2009 release "Pride and Glory."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
