  • Friends of Heath Ledger want to help finish his last film

    A host of actors have stepped up offering to help finish Heath Ledger’s last film, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.

    Sean Penn, Jake Gyllenhaal and Christian Bale – all friends of the late Australian actor – have offered their services to director Terry Gilliam to help finish the film that Ledger was halfway through filming.

    One source has revealed a change of actor could be an easy one: ‘Heath’s character falls into a magic mirror four times during the film. It allows Terry to change the actor easily if he wants to.

    ‘Jake, Sean and Christian were all friends of Heath’s and would love to be involved. The director and other big wigs on the film are mulling over the idea, but it’s likely to go ahead in what would be intended as a tribute to Ledger.’
