Heath Ledger's last film is finding it difficult to reach theatres as the makers have failed to attract distributes in US, despite the actor winning a posthumous Oscar for his performance in The Dark Knight.

'The Imaginarium of doctor Parnassus', a experimental time travel movie starring Ledger alongside Johnny Depp, is facing a limited US release as bosses struggle to land a deal with major distributors, the Contactmusic reported.

Executives have been searching for distributes for the last six months in US but have failed to find a company to release the experimental movie, which features Ledger as a travelling magician.

American audiences may not have easy access to the independent project as a result of the marketing difficulties.

Ledger died before he could complete the film and the script was changed so that his role could be taken up by Depp while retaining the dead actor's original shots.

The 28-year-old actor died of a accidental drug overdose in his New York apartment in January last year.
