London, Jan 25 : Johnny Depp may step in for tragic Heath Ledger in what has turned out to be the late actor's last film.
Oscar nominee Ledger was just six weeks from finishing fantasy movie 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' when he died while on a break.
According to a studio source, director Terry Gilliam now wants friend Johnny Depp to step into the role.
"There is a point in the film when Heath falls through a magic mirror," The Sun quoted the source, as saying. He could change into another character after that and that is where Johnny would come in.
"It's a weird, fantasy, time-travel movie so Heath's character could easily change appearance. It would be a poignant moment.
"Johnny's not working at the moment so everyone is praying he will do it."
