Will Fans Get to See Heath Ledger's Final Film?

With all the fuss about Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, it's easy to forget that the masterful performance wasn't his last. But the joke may be on fans who want to see the final frames of Ledger's career.

Ledger died on Jan. 22, 2008, in the middle of shooting Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a fantasy about a travelling theater troupe. Ledger starred as a con man named Tony. Rather than let Ledger's death end the production, Gilliam completed the film using Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to play different incarnations of the character.

Heath Ledger's Final Film Resumes Shooting

The last film that Heath Ledger was working on before his death, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, is back in production in Vancouver, according to the Reporter. Director Terry Gilliam and producers halted production when Ledger died Jan. 22. Now that the film's back in action, producers have also explained how Ledger's part will be handled, following the addition of three new actors. In a statement, they said, "Since the format of the story allows for the preservation of his entire performance, at no point will Heath's work be modified or altered through the use of digital technology. Each of the parts played by Johnny [Depp], Colin [Farrell] and Jude [Law] is representative of the many aspects of the character that Heath was playing." — Anna DimondRelated:• Depp, Law and Farrell to Replace Ledger? read more
