It’s true, I only just found out myself!
According to many sources such as The New York Times, 28 year old actor Heath Ledger died today of suspected suicide or overdose.
“Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment in Manhattan inhabited by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the New York City police. Signs pointed to a suicide or an accidental overdose, police sources said.”
Heath Ledger was set to appear as The Joker in the upcoming Batman movie “The Dark Knight“. As far as I know, the film is (or almost is) 100% complete, currently undergoing the stage of post production.
Whilst nothing has been confirmed yet, I imagine Warner Bros/Time Warner will continue to show the film, possibly dedicating the movie to the actor in this tragic event.
