Reportedly, to give time to the former fiancee of Heath Ledger to cope with his death, her upcoming romantic comedy with Ryan Gosling has been postponed for an indefinite time.
Having its leading actress, Michelle Williams, grieving for the sudden death of her former lover, the THINKFilm's upcoming romantic comedy "Blue Valentine" has been postponed indefinitely. According to People, the Derek Cianfrance directed-film is put on hold to give the former "Dawson's Creek" cast member time to cope from the death of Heath Ledger.
To People, an insider said, "We will hold off until she is ready. The production is in the process of sorting it out in respect to her." Elaborating on the postponement news, the source then added, "We're hoping she will still come back and do the film and are happy to wait. The film is tailor made for those two so of course we would want to wait. You can't get much better than them."
Supposedly, "Blue" starts filming on February 25. The movie starring also Ryan Gosling is a relationship drama focused on a young couple, David and Cindy, who are struggling with their marriage. Their problem is that while Cindy has blossomed into a woman with opportunities and options, David is still the same person he was when they met and is unable to accept either Cindy's growth or his lack of it.
Williams was engaged to Ledger and have a 2-year-old daughter Matilda from the relationship. Last September, they have decided to split after three years together. When Ledger passed away last week on January 22, the 27-year-old actress had just finished filming her last scene in the film "Mammuth" in Sweden.
