Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, “Grey’s Anatomy”) will topline the battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy The Ugly Truth for Lakeshore Entertainment, reports Variety.
The film reunites the Legally Blonde team of director Robert Luketic and writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. Columbia Pictures will distribute the film worldwide.
The story centers on a romantically challenged morning show producer (Heigl) who is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous tests by her chauvinistic correspondent to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love. His clever ploys, however, lead to an unexpected result.
Shooting is scheduled to begin April 15.
