Written by Mills Goodloe and Sal Paskowitz, the film will focus on a woman "born at the turn of the 20th century, who is rendered ageless after an accident. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man who might be worth losing her immortality." Unless there's some big plot point left to be shared, I'm not quite sure why it would be a big deal to give up your immortality when you've lived for 100 years in solitude. The disconnect is, however, fitting, given how Heigl is the actress who complained that Knocked Up was sexist, and then starred and produced The Ugly Truth.
As much as Heigl makes me want to scream in frustration, I'm hoping this at least reminds us of some of her dramatic chops. They're in there, even if they're buried deep beneath the surface when she works on all of her big-screen fluff fare.
