Next Week, Netflix will lose an iconic Heath Ledger film.
If you’re looking for something to watch over the holiday weekend, you might want to check out an iconic cult comedy that’s leaving Netflix.
On November 1, A Knight’s Tale, a 2001 action comedy starring Heath Ledger, will be removed from Netflix.
Fans should definitely catch a screening before it’s too late.
A Knight’s Tale is about a poor squire named William (Ledger) who, by chance, is given the opportunity to change his fate and attempt to become a knight.

They would get together for years after that whenever they were in the same city.
Heath would call out of the blue and say, ‘Alan and Rufus are here, let’s go out to eat!’
Helgeland also revealed that he had considered making a sequel in the past, which is a sad thought given Ledger’s tragic death in 2008.
