Heath Ledger portrayed minuteman son of Mel Gibson in ‘The Patriot’ (Columbia Pictures)
Mel Gibson fans will remember Heath Ledger as the eldest son determined to fight for independence against the British, the innocent but brave fair-haired boy-man who struggles for justice even among his fellow southern colonialists.
They will remember him in that role in the “The Patriot,” that is, until the release of “Brokeback Mountain.”
Production on Ang Lee’s movie begins this summer. It is the story of two cowboys on the range in 1963. They fall in love under the Big Sky of Wyoming.
There’s nothing left to the imagination in this script.
Ledger is reportedly in talks to star with another young actor, Jake Gyllenhaal, and they will, according to plans, perform explicit homosexual sex scenes for the camera and “mainstream” movie audiences across the world.
Yes, it’s a first.
Though major Hollywood stars such as Tom Hanks and Antonio Banderas have played homosexuals in the past, none has actually focused on the physical acts of homosexuality as this film plans to do.
Homosexual activist groups such as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation are calling the movie “groundbreaking.”
The main characters in this film marry and father children, but maintain their torrid love affair for each other throughout their lives.
The sex scenes reportedly take place in tents, on staircases and other non-bedroom locations.
Ledger, an Australian actor, also starred in “A Knight’s Tale” and “Ten Things I Hate About You,” a modern-day version of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”
