 Ledger 'brilliant' in last film

Director Terry Gilliam said replacing Heath Ledger's part with three actors to complete his final film after he died has worked.

Filming of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus was suspended when the star was found dead in January.

Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell will now appear as Ledger's character, but scenes he had previously filmed will be included in the movie.

"I've seen it and it works and it's great," said Gilliam.

Family blessing

"It's the last chance to see Heath and he's brilliant," he added.

"It [filming] stopped for a bit until the three heroes as they're now known Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell came to the rescue and finished off Heath's part.

"So you ended up with four actors playing one character."

Gilliam admitted he had been worried whether Ledger would have "accepted" the idea of having three actors replace him, but now he has seen it he is pleased with the decision.

In March the director admitted filming had resumed in Vancouver with the blessing of Ledger's family.

Ledger died from an accidental overdose of six different types of prescription drugs in his New York apartment.

Batman film The Dark Knight is currently being screened in cinemas across the UK, in which Ledger played the joker.

As far as I can remember sometime middle of next year. Yet again I will be dreading it in much the same way as TDK. There is the horribly distressing bodybag scene in TDK and in the Imaginarium, thre appears to be a scenr with Heaths' character hanging himself.It is all a bit too close for comfort.
I can recognise the amazing acting fom Heath as the joker,but for me, he will mostly be remembered for Ennis. The other problem with the Imaginarium is that it is absoloutely the very very last footage of Heath and that is a hard thing to have to face up to.

*crickets chirp*

Here's a "preview" and promo for Imaginarium, that Terry Gilliam apparently put together (?). It looks more like a reminder of what fantastical films TG has made before that a straightforward promo for IoDP.... perhaps it's an attempt to get distribution in the USA?

Anyway, it's an interesting view for anyone who's invested in Heath and his films. He's not in here though, except for one short glimpse from Brothers Grimm and an image at the end. But they do explain what the "hanging" scene is about - the one we've seen pics from earlier as Heath was filming it.

Thankyou for posting that Mikaela. That's it then isn't it. The very last of Heath.

It will be very hard to  bear ,that when the film comes out and the final credits role.That really is the finale.
