The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is Director Terry Gilliam’s upcoming fantasy movie. Heath Ledger had a lead role as the conman Tony, but he passed away in the midst of production.

But Terry Gilliam had the great idea to use a plot trick to finish the movie to honor the work done by Heath Ledger. Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law pay tribute to the actor by filling in for the remaining scenes Heath Ledger didn’t have the time to film.
Cinematographer Nicola Pecorini worked on the film and he published a nice picture on his site (here) thanks to which we may see for the first time Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law in their respective versions of Tony, the role they’re sharing with Heath Ledger:
