Veteran rom-com director Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter) and veteran rom-com star Katherine Heigl (Killers) will be putting their knowledge of the genre to work in the upcoming, no surprises here, rom-com Adaline. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the film “will revolve around a beautiful woman (Heigl) who hasn’t aged for 100 years. Although this doesn’t sound like such a raw deal, as the story goes, Heigl meets a man who may be willing to risk it all to help her regain her mortality.” How romantic…oh, and funny. Purely speculating, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Heigl realizes she would rather lose her immortality than live forever without a good man to take care of her. I’m also going to guess that this important life lesson will be marketed to girls 13 and under.
Heigl was already attached to star, but when we reported on the movie in May, it was called The Age of Adeline. Co-penned by Mills Goodloe and Sal Pascowitz, Adaline is being co-produced by Lakeshore and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment with production set to begin in early 2011.
