Katherine 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.
