VIDEO: Trailer for Heath Ledger's Final Film Released

08/11/2009 at 11:45 AM EDT



Heath Ledger was only part way through filming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus when he died from an accidental drug overdose.

But instead of shelving the project, the film's intrepid director, Terry Gilliam, cast three other actors to finish what Ledger started – versions of his character in the fanciful film are also played by Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell.

The movie's rollicking trailer, starring all four actors, was released Monday. Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, Verne Troyer and Lily Cole also star in the film. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus hits theaters Oct. 16.
