Colin Farrell, Jude Law and Johnny Depp to replace Heath Ledger in film

Heath LedgerA trio of Hollywood's biggest stars are reportedly in talks to replace the late Heath Ledger in his final movie project.

Colin Farrell, Jude Law and Johnny Depp are all set to step in to finish off the unfinished fantasy flick 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.'

The Aussie star, who was found dead in his New York apartment last month, had filmed just a portion of his scenes for Terry Gilliam's fantasy film.

All three of the A-listers have discussed stepping in to save Ledger's final movie, according to the website 'Ain't It Cool News.'

A spokeswoman for Law, 35, told the BBC that the three actors would play the role of Tony in the film "subject to negotiations".

She said she did not know how the role would be restructured.

The fantasy film follows a traveling theater troupe which offers audience members the chance to pass through a magical mirror to alternate dimensions.

Depp, Law, and Farrell are each expected to "become" Ledger's character in one of these new worlds.

Law's spokeswoman said the actor, who is on holiday, was unavailable for comment.
