Production on Parnasssus - a film about a traveling theater troupe and its magical mirror - had been shut down since news broke last week.  (Ledger had been working on that film just days prior to his death.)  Even though the $30 million pic may have to be scrapped altogether, co-star says there is hope the movie will still carry on.  According to Plummer, director is doing everything he can to work around Ledger’s absence.  The actor told People that “because the film deals with magic, there is a way, perhaps, of turning Heath into other people and then, using stills and I think they call it CGI…”
