Yes, of course they will. Why wouldn't they? To cut such an expensive film from release after post-production is already completed, too many people would be way in the red.

3. Will they still show the film despite this?

I am numb... Hollywood has lost one of it's most talented and courageous actors. He and Jake put their reputations, even their lives on the line making Brokeback Mountain. I have loved Heath since I saw him in 10 Things. I pray that this was an accident. My heart breaks for Michelle and their baby.

IQ is showing    

Sleeping pills (especially Ambien) are pretty weird. Ambien is not over the counter, but if he had a prescription for that and was also taking OTC sleeping pills, who knows what could've happened. I'm guessing it was a stupid drug overdose. An accident, I guess...but an avoidable one. People need to pay attention to ANY AND ALL drugs they take.

This came as a shock. You will be missed Heath. Sad that such a big talent and a devoted father passed away so young and way to soon.
My heart goes out to your family and friends.
May you rest in peace, and never be forgotten.
