New York, July 17 (ANI): Film director Terry Gilliam believes that the Oscar push for late actor Heath Ledger for his performance as the Joker in the film The Dark Knight is a publicity stunt.
He says that veteran actor Michael Caine and critics suggestion to award Ledger with an Oscar is nothing but Warner Brothers scheme to publicize their film.
“Warner Brothers(will) do anything to publicize their film,” the New York Daily News quoted Gilliam as saying.
Meanwhile, there are reports that an Australian court will decide how much of a share the Brokeback Mountain stars daughter Matilda Rose will get in his property.
Ledger had made the will before Matilda’’s birth, so its executors have now applied for probate in the West Australian Supreme Court in Perth, reports Daily Telegraph. (ANI)
