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?
