I did a little test- about 20 min of work. If you duplicate the layer- precomp and crush blacks to make the image contrasty enough in the precomp- roto brush does a pretty good job of picking up the foreground with the two actors. A bit of tweaking for the matte edge, short track, comping the pillar (or whatever that may be- pardon my lack of knowledge on the subject)with blacks cut to match the plate and whites a bit brighter and you have a decent replacement. The background plate for the new sky/mountains should be adjusted to where the edge on the right of the foreground almost blends in with it.
Of course the tracking should be better and the shadow adjusted + a patch to cover the tripod shadow, but not bad me thinks.
