Well-known trio rumored to be filling in gaps of Gilliam's latest.

It’s still officially a rumor, but the folks doing the rumoring are saying it’s 100% verified, so we’re running with the story like everyone else: Terry Gilliam‘s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is moving ahead with three actors in Heath Ledger‘s stead, and their names are…

According to Ain’t It Cool News, Parnassus director Terry Gilliam has chosen Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to fill in for the recently deceased Heath Ledger. According to previous reports, echoed by AICN‘s Moriarty, the Parnassus script will make it easy for Gilliam to give Ledger’s character four faces — and enable, in Moriarty’s words, “three very interesting actors” to pay “one final tribute” to their fallen comrade.

Until there’s official confirmation from any of the involved parties, it’d be wise to treat this as an unfounded rumor — but it’s a heckuva rumor anyway. How many of you just felt your anticipation for Doctor Parnassus increase? A lot, even?
