Katherine Heigl rings in ‘New Year’s Eve’

Thesp replaces Halle Berry in ensemble rom-com

Katherine Heigl’s replaced Halle Berry in “New Year’s Eve,” joining the cast of New Line’s ensemble comedy.

Production starts this week for “Eve,” with Garry Marshall directing. Other cast includes Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger and Sofia Vergara.

Biel and Kutcher were in Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day,” but the characters from that New Line pic won’t be in “New Year’s Eve” — which will be set in New York and follow intertwining stories of characters trying to navigate their way through romance on New Year’s Eve.

“Valentine’s Day” producers Mike Karz and Wayne Rice are producing “New Year’s Eve” with screenwriter Katherine Fugate returing. New Line has given “New Year’s Eve” a Dec. 9 release date.

Heigl will be seen next as Stephanie Plum in “One for the Money,” due out July 8.
