(Newser) – An animated music video directed by the late Heath Ledger premieres tomorrow online, the band Modest Mouse writes on its MySpace page. Ledger’s “brave and unapologetic” idea for King Rat, “fully conceived down to the last detail but unfinished” at his 2008 death, was seen through by The Masses, a production company in which he was a partner, NME reports.
