Many rumors are swirling about the fate of Ledger's movies.
First, Johnny Depp is supposed to replace tragic actor Heath Ledger in what was to be his latest film role, in the fantasy flick "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."
Now the film’s director, Terry Gilliam wants his pal Johnny Depp, 44, to film the remaining scenes. A studio insider said: “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.
Another rumor is that the Warner Bros marketing folks are mulling over the July 18 release of "The Dark Knight," where, Mister Heath was set to be the Joker! The centerpiece of the marketing campaign is centered around Ledger's character, now that he's gone, no one would be able to grant interviews for the movies.
Take a closer look at Ledger's Joker, didn't he eerily resemble Brandon Lee's "The Crow?" And we all know the tragic fate that met Brandon while shooting that movie. But for now, let's relish what will be Mister Heath's most-watched performance, Batman's most famous nemesis, the Joker in "The Dark Knight."

The title of the new James Bond film, the 22nd Bond adventure, is going to be called...."QUANTUM OF SOLACE."
The title was revealed to reporters Thursday at Pinewood Studios outside of London, where the movie is being filmed.
Producer Michael G. Wilson said the title, chosen only a few days ago, was taken from a story by Bond creator Ian Fleming that appears in the collection "For Your Eyes Only."
"We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film," he said.
Daniel Craig is returning as Agent 007. He picks up where 2006's "Casino Royale" left off, with Bond contemplating revenge after his betrayal by his true love, Vesper Lynd.
"It is not a revenge movie," said co-producer Barbara Broccoli. "It's a lot more complicated than that. It has lots of action but it also deals with the inner turmoil Bond is feeling."
Filming began at Pinewood Studios earlier this month. Location shooting is planned in Austria, Italy and Panama. Judi Dench returns as the MI-6 boss M and Mathieu Amalric ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") plays the villain. Additions to the cast include Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko as mysterious Bond girl Camille.
"Quantum of Solace" is set to open in Britain and the United States on Nov. 7.
