Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”) will star in the romance film Life as We Know It for Warner Bros., says Variety. Greg Berlanti will direct and Barry Josephson and Paul Brooks are producing.
The story follows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers for their orphaned daughter.
Heigl and her mother Nancy Heigl are executive producing Life as We Know It.
Berlanti is best known as a writer and executive producer on TV series “Dirty Sexy Money,” “Brothers and Sisters” and “Dawson’s Creek.” He wrote the Green Lantern script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green and will produce with Donald De Line.
