    Yes, looking forward to this one. Whatever Gilliam makes is interesting.

    I really wish Gilliam would've directed a Harry Potter movie.

    I'm really looking forward to this, not only for Heath and whatever other actors he puts in his place, but Gilliam always has some crazy movies, and from what I have seen and heard about this it looks like it will be the same.

    Brazil was boss.. Gilliam is the man and I know that Heath probably gave a helluva performance..

    He is probably the single most unsuited director for that.

    Depp, Law And Farrell In Parnassus?
    All continuing Heath Ledger's work?

    Since, at the time of his death, Heath Ledger was still working on Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, many have been wondering how the film could possibly be completed. There have been rumours of a number of actors taking over and a dramatic change in appearance being explained in the fantastical nature of the film. Now Ain't It Cool is saying that three actors have been confirmed to play the same role as Ledger.

    The site says that they've had it confirmed that Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell will all play Ledger's character, a man trying to save the daughter of a travelling showman who sold her to the devil in exchange for eternal youth, at different points in the film.

    It's not quite explained how the change in appearance will work, but you can't argue with the quality of the talent there. We'd never expect Gilliam to be anything other than completely respectful to Ledger and, if he has actually chosen these actors to pay tribute to him, then we think he's going the right way about it.

    Was right about to post it. I am happy with those actors, I think they will do a good job.

    Although, the whole project sounds weird and even confusing, I am looking forward to it :)

    Heath;'s death of course got me a little interested in this, but then the plot sounds a little strange but it seems like it could be interesting. The addition of Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell could make this pretty interesting.

    Farrell's last films really sucked, but I still respect him as an actor :up:

    Have you seen In Bruges? Easily the best movie he's ever done and the only movie that I ever like Farrell in.

    I hope it's better than Tideland. I'm a Gilliam fan, but Tideland was awful. :(

    I really hope this turns out good, loved Brazil (who didnt) and would love to see Gilliam do something close to that again. Was there ever any word on him going back to doing his Don Quixote movie, would love to see that if he could get past the "curse"

    The title of this movie always reminds me of "The Contrabulous Fabtraption of Professor Horatio Hufnagel"... :yay:
