Actor Heath Ledger was in London filming his latest flick
"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," before he jetted back home to NYC, only to die a few hours later.
The production for the movie has been shut down and the staff have gone home. “I just got the call [Tuesday] saying everyone was being let go,” the on-set source tells Us magazine. “We were supposed to start this weekend, but obviously they fired everyone today.
“They don’t know yet what they are doing with the footage that was already shot,” the source adds.
Production for the movie had started in late December and he was on break from filming when he returned to NYC.
“Right now, everyone is in complete shock and can’t even speak,” the on-set source says. It's such a shame that someone so talented lost his life so early. You'll be missed Heath!
