Ledger’s Last Flick: Will We See It?

Heath Ledger

Though he died at a relatively young age, left behind an impressive body of work for fans to enjoy. This Oscar-winning actor has been highly celebrated for his award-winning role in The Dark Knight, a film widely believed to be his last. It is not.

At the time of his death, Ledger was in the midst of filming . The indie flick details the life of a traveling magician. In order to complete the film, actors Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp finished scenes which would have featured Ledger.

The movie has now been completed for six months, but there are currently no deals in the works to bring the flick to the US market. Though major distributors stepped forward months ago, these deals reportedly fell apart and currently there’s nothing in the till. Does this mean we’ll never see Ledger’s last movie?

Don’t count on it. Sooner or later, someone will pick up the movie and bring it to US audiences.

I can't wait to see this movie. It looks awesome and I agree its going to blow everyone away.

:coolsmile: Dark Night looks like its really going to be great. Don't know who knocked it here in NY but the local news station say it look like oscar buzz for Keith.

I've actually heard that a fair bit to. Wouldn't doubt it, I've heard ledger's performance is outstanding.

I also want to see Hel :) Boy.

that actually does look fairly good!

Oh man, I totally want to see both of those movies! The Dark Knight will be the biggest summer hit this year I think. So many people will watch it if only to see Heath Ledger's final performance. Plus, it looks super rad! As far as Hell Boy goes, I really enjoyed the first one, so I'm stoked on the second one.

The second one was excellent. I watvched it last night. Tons of action and was just an all around good movie. Much better then the first one I thought.
