Katherine Heigl finds “The Ugly Truth”

Variety reports that Katherine Heigl will star in the romantic comedy “The Ugly Truth” for Lakeshore Entertainment and Sony/Columbia Pictures. The project will be written by “Legally Blonde” screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith and will be directed by “Legally Blonde” director Robert Luketic.

The story focuses on a “romantically challenged morning show producer” who is put through a serious of 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.
