Michelle Williams is horrified over plans for a movie based on the days leading up to her partner Heath Ledger's death, because she does not want anyone to profit from his tragic end.

The 31-year-old actress' former boyfriend and father of her six-year-old daughter Matilda, died from an accidental overdose in 2008.

The 'My Week With Marilyn' star is reportedly furious that the film based on his last days is being touted. "Michelle was horrified to hear talk of plans for such a grim film," Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.

"She hates the thought of re-opening old wounds and finds it distasteful that people are trying to make money off his legacy. "She never thought the film would get the green light but it looks like her worst fears could come true."

The two met on the set of 'Brokeback Mountain' in 2004 with Matilda born on October 2005. Friends say that it is the young girl Williams is most worried about.

"It's all about Matilda. She doesn't want their daughter to be constantly reminded of the circumstances surrounding his death for the rest of her life," the source added.
