ADALINE Will Star Angela Lansbury As Katherine Heigl’s Daughter
You read that title right, and it is not a misprint. Andy Tennant is directing the film ADALINE and has cast Angela Lansbury as the daughter of Katherine Heigel. Landsbury is currently filming Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and will begin shooting Adaline in April of 2011.
Adaline is the co-production of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Lakeshore, and will star Katherine Heigl as the title character. J Mills Goodloe and Sal Paskowitz wrote the first draft of the script that follows Adaline who was killed in a car accident decades ago. A simultaneous lightening strike resuscitates her and locks her in her late 20s. Adaline lives a solitary life, until she meets a man that she wants to grow old with.
Lansbury plays her daughter, now in her 80s, that needs her mother’s care as her heath deteriorates.
