(Newser) – Cameras are rolling again on the movie Heath Ledger was filming at the time of his death in January. As expected, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law will complete his role in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Director Terry Gilliam said he's “delighted that Heath’s brilliant performance can be shared with the world.”

The film revolves around a magic mirror that transports characters to various dimensions, the BBC reports. “Since the format of the story allows for the preservation of his entire performance, at no point will Heath's work be modified or altered,” the producers said. “Each of the parts played by Johnny, Colin, and Jude is representative of the many aspects of the character.” (Read more Heath Ledger stories.)
