I remember in a Rolling Stone magazine interview Chris Nolan mentioned when asked about it that if Heath were alive we'd have a different third movie. It sucks knowing we'll never get that movie, but it's not a creative issue it's an unfortunate thing a man prematurely lost his life and as a result plans were changed.
