Trio to complete Ledger's role Doctor Parnassus…? (updated again: maybe)

AICN reported on Friday that a trio of actors — Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and Colin Farrell — will be stepping in to Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (a mouthful title that reminded me too much of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium), and while I’m still skeptical about it, in light of Depp’s rep’s denial last month, considering there has been no confirmation from any other sources, Variety has jumped onto the bandwagon, as well.

I’ll believe it when one of their reps confirm it, frankly.

UPDATE (2/19, 2:19 AM): Aaaand Jude Law’s spokeswoman has just confirmed it, via Reuters.

UPDATE (2/19, 3:04 PM): Not so fast… The BBC now quotes Law’s spokeswoman as confirming the actors’ involvement, "subject to negotiations." This is all very tiresome. Reuters’ reporter stating their participation as fact — not one that is not yet final — is just plain sloppy reporting.
