Katherine Heigl gets a ‘Life’

Katherine Heigl will star in the romantic film “Life as We Know It” for Warner Brothers, with Greg Berlanti directing and Barry Josephson and Paul Brooks producing.

According to Variety, Heigl and her mother Nancy are executive producing.

The project dates back to 2001, when Revolution bought the spec script from writers Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson. 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.

Berlanti is best known as a writer and executive producer on the 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.
