Katherine Heigl is firmly back in the saddle with another production set to follow-up next month’s release of The Big Wedding. Deadline reported earlier this afternoon that the actress is teaming up with Patrick Wilson and Darko Entertainment for North of Hell. The dark comedy sets the Gifted Man star as a successful businessman with an obsessive controlling wife (Heigl.) This sounds like a really good project for the Grey’s Anatomy alumna as she seems to be riding a wave of low-profile material as of late. We will keep our eyes on this one as it has Skateland’s Anthony Burns directing.
Heigl is coming off of the release of One For the Money–an action comedy that grossed $37 million on a $40 million budget. Her next movies include the previously mentioned Big Wedding and A Moment to Remember. The latter comes from The Sessions director Ben Lewin.
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.) Continue Reading
The first theatrical trailer has arrived for the Justin Zackhman-directed comedy The Big Wedding. This film is about a long-divorced couple played by Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton who pretend to still be married for the sake of a family wedding. Its trailer pretty much hammers out the details beyond that, so take a look to get a sense of what we are really looking at here.
The supporting cast is pretty hefty with Amanda Seyfried, Katherine Heigl, Topher Grace, and Robin Williams. Williams will be playing Father Monaghan which should seem very familiar as he pretty much shot the exact same scenes for License to Wed, but it in all fairness that film had the actor playing a Reverend.

Katherine Heigl has been cast in a somewhat bizarre sounding film called The Happytime Murders. This particular feature is set in a world where puppets and people co-exist, and it is about a cast of 80′s TV show puppets being murdered one after the other. The director of this murder mystery style movie will be Brian Henson who has a little bit of a Muppet background as he was behind 1992′sThe Muppet Christmas Carol which grossed $27 million at the box office as well as the 1997 television series Muppets Tonight.
According to Deadline, Katherine Heigl has lined up her next film coming off her low-grossing rom com One for the Money. The actress has moved onto another genre with a thriller called Face Blind and just reading the plot will explain the title. In this particular film, Heigl will play a psychologist who has a rare condition that makes it hard to distinguish people’s faces which causes her character a lot of mental anguish when she begins thinking that her patient’s terrorizer begins stalking her. It almost feels like a Black Swan- type vibe, but we will have to wait and see if that is how this one turns out.
Who would have thought that another Katherine Heigl chick flick would do so lousy with reviewers? They absolutely hate it so far, and with ten critics currently weighing in, the film is shut out with a 0% fresh rating. While even the worst of the worst end up getting at least one ‘like’ by the 30th review, the message is clear to movie goers that this trip to the cinema will be anything but special.
There are so many diverse elements of the feature that is the target of this hate, but I will try to keep this short. Comments include slams at the rehashing of Jennifer Aniston’s bounty hunter movie, a ‘sitcoms are better than this’ stab, and some bitter sentiments about the Stephanie Plum series deserving more than an awkward effort from the movie’s leading lady. Ouch.
One for the Money’s Katherine Heigl was on Today this morning where she sat down with Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford to promote her new film. She talks about the feature’s source material and how she will no longer use her daughter to help publicize her newest theatrical effort.
During a promotional interview for her new film, One for the Money, Katherine Heigl has announced to the world she wants back on the series that helped launch her career–Grey’s Anatomy. The Knocked Up actress left the series to help raise her recently adopted daughter back in January 10, but now that things have settled down she cannot help but wonder where her character on the ABC medical drama was going. Here is a clip from the interview with E!
The following is the second official trailer for One for the Money in which Katherine Heigl plays a bounty hunter who’s tasked with bringing in someone from her romantic past (played by Terra Nova’s Jason O’Mara). Before you groan and say, “didn’t we just see that?” No, that was Jennifer Aniston and in that one she was the fugitive. This one hits theaters on January 27.
Here is the teaser trailer for Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve which stars a crazy big ensemble cast reminiscent to Valentine’s Day in size and quality. The film hits theaters on December 9, 2011. Continue Reading
Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy and Knocked Up) is reported to be both producing and starring in the upcoming HBO film, The Knitting Circle. The film is about a woman who struggles to come to terms with the death of her young daughter, until she joins a knitting circle.
For those interested as to why Heigl would go back to television after she finally got out of it, it’s because she is also producing the film. Producing credits are more and more vital to an actresses’ career later in life as, when they grow older, the volume of roles at their disposal dramatically decreases. Heigl has previous executive producer credits for The Ugly Truth and Life as We Know It among others.
