If you’re a Katherine Heigl fan, cross your fingers that she’s become better at picking projects, as I reckon she’s only got a couple more movies before people start to see her as a sign a film’s gonna be a bit rubbish. It seems she’s hoping that moving away from rom-com territory will help, as Variety reports she’s signed up to produce and star in The Follower.
Unfortunately, no story details have been released, other than that the project is a thriller. That could be a good move for her, as since leaving Grey’s Anatomy she’s stuck firmly in the romantic comedy ghetto. Tony Giglio (Death Race 3) wrote the screenplay.
Heigl also produced The Ugly Truth, Life as We Know It, and the upcoming comedy One for the Money, which she also stars in. To be honest, that’s going to give people little faith in this new project through.
