Johhny Depp To Replace Ledger?
At the time of his tragic death, Brokeback Mountain star Heath Ledger was just six weeks from completing his latest film role in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. The film’s director, Terry Gilliam, reportedly hopes that his friend, Johnny Depp, will step in to film the remaining scenes. According to reports, “There is a point in the film when Heath falls through a magic mirror. He could change into another character after that and that is where Johnny would come in. It’s a weird, fantasy, time-travel movie so Heath’s character could easily change appearance. It would be a poignant moment…Johnny’s not working at the moment so everyone is praying he will do it.”
