(Photo: Splash News Online) As some of you may know, Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law have agreed to replace the late Heath Ledger in his last film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

What you may not know is how tough the decision was for Ledger's friend Farrell.

"It was a very difficult decision to make, when I first heard about it I totally freaked at the idea," said Farrell. "But it was important to get Heath's work out and doing what I think Heath would have wanted, which was finishing the movie to its entirety."

It was also a controversial decision for the film's other actors as well, such as Verne 'Mini-Me' Troyer.

"I don't know how I feel about it. Part of me thinks maybe it would be better to leave it be (and not replace Ledger)," said Troyer.

No doubt the director of the movie, Terry Gilliam, is ultimately relieved to be able to finish it, since he already had one film (Don Quixote, also starring Johnny Depp) fall through.
