Katherine Heigl to Wear 27 Dresses

As everyone gears up for wedding season, Katherine Heigl is preparing to sigh "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride," for her next film project, 27 Dresses. The movie will be Anne Fletcher's second directorial venture after Step Up, and the screenplay comes from The Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna. According to Variety:

Heigl will play a single woman who has served as a bridesmaid 27 times. She is enlisted once again for the job, and this time it's particularly painful: Her sister is marrying the man the bridesmaid is madly in love with.


Huh. Well, so far, the movie sounds like a silly, campy, girly flick, and I'm sure Heigl will do well with it. Apparently, the actress has been courted for more roles ever since she signed on to do Knocked Up with 40-Year-Old Virgin writer/producer Judd Apatow. If the early buzz is any indication, Heigl is likely to have even more offers after Knocked Up comes out. To find out why,

Despite its release date being more than two months away, Knocked Up is already garnering critical praise after screening at the SXSW Film Festival. The trailer looks pretty average, but these super early reviews make the movie sound like this year's 40-Year-Old Virgin, and the presence of Virgin star Rogen can't hurt. To see for yourselves, watch the trailer below and tell me what you think.

KH seems perfectly cast for this role. She has a wonderful sense of timing for these types of lighthearted romantic comedies. 27 Dresses sounds as though it has potential as well. She is a good actress, but she may need to stretch a bit more to be taken as seriously as she should be.

I think KH is a great actress and is very attractive, but her personality annoys me because she seems hungry for fame and sees it as her "right" instead of it just happening because it's her time.
