Heigl Faces The Ugly Truth

Knocked Up star and Grey’s Anatomy doc Katherine Heigl has signed on to a "battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy" The Ugly Truth, helmed by the writers and director of Legally Blonde, according to Variety.

Story centers on a romantically challenged morning show producer (Heigl) who is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous 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.
