Katherine Heigl to Star in Psychological Thriller FACE BLIND

Fear not, Katherine Heigl fans! Though it’s sad that the opening weekend of One for the Money has already come and gone, leaving us with many Heigl-less moviegoing weekends to come, the 27 Dresses star won’t be absent from theaters for long. Deadline reports that Heigl is set to star in an independent thriller called Face Blind. If you’re thinking to yourself “That’s a terrible title,” I point your attention to the film’s arguably more terrible logline: Hegl stars as “a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces. When a man who terrorized her most vulnerable patient stalks her, the psychologist can’t recognize him, and her husband thinks she’s the one who is going crazy.” Sure.

It appears that Heigl’s attempting to go the “serious dramatic route” after languishing in romantic comedy hell for the past few years, but she’s chosen a seriously awful premise with which to stretch whatever dramatic chops she may possess. In addition to starring, Heigl will also produce Face Blind (I sincerely hope they keep this title). The actress most recently starred in the aptly named One for the Money, and will next be seen in the star-packed romantic comedy The Wedding.
