    Default Johnny Depp asked to replace Heath Ledger’s role

    Johnny Depp has been asked to replace Heath Ledger in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the latest project Heath had been working on. Director, Terry Gilliman, has hand picked Johnny himself.

    But that doesn’t mean that Heath won’t be in themovie at all…there is a part in the movie where Heath’s character falls through a magic , and that is where Johnny can appear as the changed character.
    It’s sad that they are thinking about this already but I am happy that they haven’t thought of cutting Heath’s part out totally. I would love to see this movie!!!

    i hope they do go ahead with this. i love terry gilliam and he deserves to be able to finish making this movie. he's had too much bad luck with actors and studios and even floods fucking up his movies. i hope they leave heath's part in but even if they don't, johnny depp is a great choice.

    Me too. I can't wait to see it. Both Heath and Johnny were extremely talented, and with Gilliam directing I'm pretty damn sure I'll like it.

    I think JD is a great pic for this film. Poor Terry Gilliman....he's got to try and save the production. I'm sure they've already lost alot of money this week. That's the biz. Life goes on.

    From what I read they only had 6 weeks of filming left, so what are their options? It's unfortunate but I'm sure they're looking for any way to save the film. This way, there won't be a lot of re-shooting and Heath fans can see his final role. Sounds like a good solution to me.

    This is heartening news. I love Gilliam, and I love Depp. I hope they can make this work. Johnny really DOES make everything better.

    i hears heath was done filming all his scenes and all that was left to do were the special effects stuff in the blue room. but there are definitely conflicting results. who knows what will really happen. i hope they manage to still finish the movie, i love gilliam and this movie sounds amazing.

    I think Heath is going to be more famous after death than he was before.
    You gotta love it.

    I hope Depp takes the role. The Vancouver film industry is pretty much on its last legs because of the closure of this pic. Besides, Depp knows the city well. He shot 21 Jump Street here way back when.
