Washington, Jan 24 : Production has been shut down on Oscar nominated star Heath Ledger's last movie.
The actor was on a break from filming fantasy adventure movie 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' when he passed away in New York on Jan 22.
A source on the sets of the movie revealed that hours after Ledger's untimely death, crew members were let off.
"I just got the call [Tuesday] saying everyone was being let go," the on-set source tells Usmagazine.com.
"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.
"Right now, everyone is in complete shock and can't even speak," the on-set source says.
He will posthumously be seen on the big screen when 'The Dark Knight', the sequel to the 2005 film Batman Begins, debuts on July 18, 2008. Ledger played the villain The Joker in the movie.
