Katherine Heigl’s New Film Turns to Indiegogo for Help

Katherine Heigl's New Film Turns Indiegogo

Zach Braff and Rob Thomas aren’t the only ones who can use crowd sourcing sites.

The producers of Katherine Heigl’s new indie film, “Jenny’s Wedding,” have launched an Indiegogo page in the hopes of raising $150,000 by March 28 in order to complete post-production work. The funds will go to music, titles, color and sound.

The campaign’s exclusive perks include behind-the-scenes footage, signed screenplays, advanced screenings with cast and filmmakers, retweets from Heigl and the actual wedding dress she wears in the movie.

“Jenny’s Wedding” follows a woman (Heigl) who shocks her close-knit, conservative family by announcing that she is going to marry a woman. Tom Wilkinson and Linda Emond play Heigl’s old-fashioned parents.

The movie was financed by Merced Media Partners and PalmStar Media Capital and exec produced by PalmStar’s Kevin Frakes, Merced’s Raj Brinder Singh and Stuart Brown, as well as Lauren Selig.

The Solution Entertainment Group’s Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel are also executive producing the film and will handle international sales.

As of this afternoon, the Indiegogo page has raised $3,386.

    Why is there no mention of the actress playing Katherine Heigl’s Fiancée?

    Brother, 150k for all those aspects to be completed? I cannot imagine what the finished film will sound like. One day, producers will wake up and understand as George Lucas has stated, sound makes up 50 % of every film. Sheesh

    Why will anyone give money to a film starring Heigl?
