Heath Ledger most recently gave one of the critically acclaimed performances in the Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There” and will be seen shortly as the Joker in the second Batman prequel, “The Dark Knight“, which is now in post-production. He was filming Terry Gilliam’s “Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” which was due in 2009.
