Heigl, Duhamel star in Warner Bros. romance
“Mad Men” co-star Christina Hendricks is set to star alongside Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel in Warner Bros. romancer “Life as We Know It.”
Greg Berlanti will direct, with Barry Josephson and Gold Circle topper Paul Brooks producing. “Life” is slated to begin production in Atlanta this fall.
Project, penned by Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson, follows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers of their orphaned daughter. Hendricks will portray the best friend to Heigl’s and Duhamel’s characters.
Heigl and her mother Nancy Heigl are exec producing the pic.
Hendricks will soon be seen alongside Emily Mortimer in the indie drama “Leonie.”
