Katherine Heigl Out of ADALINE
Yesterday we reported that Katherine Heigl would star opposite Angela Lansbury in ADALINE, the Lakeshore/Kimmel Entertainment film. This morning Heigl withdrew from the project.
Rumors began that Heigl was fired from Adaline because of disagreements with Lakeshore, however Lakeshore and reps for Heigl herself are stating that this is false. Heigl has recently adopted a daughter and wasn’t ready to come back to work, is the statement from both sides.
Gary Lucchesi, a producer on the film states: . “She has made two movies with us and we certainly support her decision. We were scheduled to shoot mid-March and we hope to achieve that. We are great fans of hers and if this is what she has to do, we respect that.”
Heigl has starred in The Ugly Truth for Lakeshore and just finished filming a big screen adaptation of Janet Evanovich’s novel One for the Money.
The role of Adaline will be recast immediately to attempt to keep the shooting date of mid-March.
