Katherine Heigl Takes the Lead in ‘Jenny's Wedding’

Katherine Heigl takes lead in Jenny's WeddingKatherine Heigl has boarded Mary Agnes Donoghue's upcoming indie comedy Jenny's Wedding. Tom Wilkinson, Linda Emond and Grace Gummer will be co-starring.

The story centers on Jenny (Katherine Heigl), who causes a rift in her closely knit family when she decides to get married. Her parents (Tom Wilkinson and Linda Emond) disagree with her choice in a mate and it tears the family apart. The newlyweds must reinvent themselves to win the approval of her parents.

MM Productions' Michelle Manning had this to say about the project.

"I am proud to bring writer/director Mary Agnes Donoghue's poignant story to life. Her vision of the family dynamic is unique, inspiring and highly entertaining, and we couldn't have assembled a better cast to bring the complexities of these characters to life, in what will surely make a highly impactful and very commercial film that will strike a chord with audiences everywhere."

Mary Agnes Donoghue is directing from a script she wrote. Kevin Scott Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, Stuart Brown and Lauren Selig are producing. Production is scheduled to begin October 8th.

      @skywise I never payed attention to that. I always thought she made terrible career choices with her acting.

        @bawnian-dexeus she really has a bad rep after bad mouthing Knocked Up (which, lets face it...put her on the map in a big way) and I think that audiences and fans have reacted to that.

          @skywise I'd love nothing more than to see her to do better, but it won't be happening anytime soon it seems.

            She is so gorgeous and yet....so hard to watch in film. I know One for the Money was panned critically but IMO it was probably one of her best roles. And the film followed the book pretty closely (until the ending which went way off the rails).

            Anyway, just as @bawnian-dexeus said...a big fat MEH for me too.
