Johnny Depp might replace the late Heath Ledger in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Thesun.co.uk reports that Ledger, who died on Jan 22, was just six weeks from finishing the movie. Now director Terry Gilliam wants Depp to film the remaining scenes.

"There is a point in the film when Heath falls through a magic mirror. 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," said a source.

It was also recently revealed that just three days before his death, Ledger had a fight with the movie's bosses when they refused to re-shoot a scene that he was not happy with.

An insider said: "It's a big clue as to the state of mind Heath was in."
