Katherine Heigl To Replace Halle Berry In NEW YEAR’S EVE
Deadline.com is reporting that former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl is the official replacement for Halle Berry in New Line’s upcoming romantic comedy NEW YEAR’S EVE – which also means she gets to kiss famous musician Jon Bon Jovi in the film. According to sources, Berry recently dropped out of the project and Heigl joined after officially withdrawing from another film that was supposed to shoot in March.
Heigl has been working on and off since her recent adoption of her first child, and New Year’s Eve is an ensemble film that will allow her to have a flexible shooting schedule and a relaxed production commitment. The actress had reportedly been in early talks for the film, originally called Valentine’s Day before a deal with Berry was made.
New Year’s Eve also stars the talents of Robert De Niro, Sofia Vergara, Russell Peters, Hilary Swank, Ice Cube, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Jessica Biel and Til Schweiger. Although filming has started on various parts of the production, no release date has been set.
Do you think Katherine Heigl is an appropriate replacement for Halle Berry? She certainly seems to do well in the romantic comedy genre.
