Marsden and Akerman Join 27 Dresses


James Marsden (“X-Men” films) and Malin Akerman (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) have joined the Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”) romantic comedy 27 Dresses, the Spyglass Entertainment project to be produced by Fox 2000.

Anne Fletcher (Step Up) is set to direct from a script by The Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna.

27 Dresses centers on a young woman (Heigl) who has made a career out of being a bridesmaid but never a bride and faces her worst nightmare when her sister (Akerman) becomes engaged to the man of her dreams. Luckily, the wedding brings around the man (Marsden) who will change her bridesmaid status for good.

Production is set to begin in May in New York and Rhode Island.
