Remember Katherine Heigl? Yes, she’s still around. There is news today on her next movie as the Grey’s Anatomy alumna has boarded A Moment to Remember from The Sessions director Ben Lewin. This is a remake of a Korean film based on the Japanese television show Pure Soul. The plot of the drama has Heigl portraying a fashion designer who loses her memory, thus forcing her husband to try harder (for one last memory.)
This is the third live-feature project on the Knocked Up star’s dance card. A Moment to Remember joins the already-completed Robert De Niro comedy The Big Wedding and a thriller called Face Blind which we last heard about over a year ago. These pics will follow-up One for the Money which bowed last January to a disappointing $11.5 million open. It is safe to say the actress has lost a lot of her luster, but that can be attributed to a relative absence on her part as Heigl’s only other big screen appearance since 2010 has been an ensemble flick, New Year’s Eve.
That said, the fact that she is in on this movie is a big deal for her. Ben Lewin could easily turn the boat around as long as the plot does not delude things into the typical Heigl flick which may not work anymore. We look forward to hearing more on her latest project particularly due to our fondness of the Grey’s star even though she disrespected her TV writers a few years back by making those now infamous Emmy comments.
