Colin Farrell “honored” to be a part of Heather Ledger’s final film

Colin FarrellIrish actor Colin Farrel feels "honored" to be a part of Heath Ledger's final film.

Farrell, along with Jude Law and Johnny Depp, is set to step in to finish off the fantasy flick 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' - which was unfinished when Ledger, 28, died last month.

"I will be honored to be part of that," the actor told Australia's Herald Sun newspaper.

The film, directed by Terry Gilliam, 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.

"It makes me feel uncomfortable to think about it too much and to get into it really here, but it's an incredibly painful honor to have, you know, and an honour I wish wasn't bestowed but an honor none-the-less," Farrell said.

"It's about getting Heath's work out there, get his work out there, he's too good for any of his work not to be seen, you know, and I'm really keen and looking forward to doing it and just doing the best job I can do," Colin, 31, added.

Heath Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment last month, after he accidentally overdosed on prescription drugs.
