Katherine Heigl set for ‘Truth’

Film reunites 'Legally Blonde' director, writers

Katherine Heigl will topline the battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy “The Ugly Truth” for Lakeshore Entertainment.

Film reunites the “Legally Blonde” team of helmer Robert Luketic and writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith.

Columbia Pictures will distribute “Ugly Truth” worldwide.

Story centers on a romantically challenged morning show producer (Heigl) who is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous tests by her chauvinistic correspondent to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love. His clever ploys, however, lead to an unexpected result.

Shooting is scheduled to begin April 15.

Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing alongside Steve Reuther.

Film was greenlit based on Lutz & Smith’s rewrite of Nicole Eastman’s original screenplay. Lutz & Smith last teamed with Lakeshore on the Amanda Bynes starrer “She’s the Man.”

Heigl, who starred in the summer hit “Knocked Up,” will next be seen in “27 Dresses” for Fox 2000.

Luketic’s next film, the casino thriller “21,” will be distributed by Sony. His credits include “Monster-in-Law” and “Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!”
