Everybody thinks “The Dark Knight” is Heath Ledger’s final film, but it’s not true. If everyone gets their facts straight, Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” is Heath’s last and final film ever. This was the film Heath Ledger was still filming before he died. Heath Ledger originally was supposed to play the leading role throughout the entire film but due to his death, three big name actors took over Heath’s spot leaving the real Heath a cameo in the film.
Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law who starred in the film agreed to give their paychecks they got from making the film to Matilda, the daughter of Heath and Michelle Williams.

Those three guys did a great thing. They got plenty of money, they don’t really need it. Matilda deserved it.
