As everyone gears up for wedding season, Katherine Heigl is preparing to sigh "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride," for her next film project, 27 Dresses. The movie will be Anne Fletcher's second directorial venture after Step Up, and the screenplay comes from The Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna. According to Variety:
Heigl will play a single woman who has served as a bridesmaid 27 times. She is enlisted once again for the job, and this time it's particularly painful: Her sister is marrying the man the bridesmaid is madly in love with.
Huh. Well, so far, the movie sounds like a silly, campy, girly flick, and I'm sure Heigl will do well with it. Apparently, the actress has been courted for more roles ever since she signed on to do Knocked Up with 40-Year-Old Virgin writer/producer Judd Apatow. If the early buzz is any indication, Heigl is likely to have even more offers after Knocked Up comes out. To find out why, read more
Despite its release date being more than two months away, Knocked Up is already garnering critical praise after screening at the SXSW Film Festival. The trailer looks pretty average, but these super early reviews make the movie sound like this year's 40-Year-Old Virgin, and the presence of Virgin star Rogen can't hurt.
