Katherine Heigl has signed on to play the leading role in A Moment to Remember, a new project from The Sessions director Ben Lewin. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of the project, which is based on a Korean television series, “Pure Soul,” which itself was made into a Korean film in 2004.
A Moment to Remember follows a fasion designer (Heigl) who begins to suffer from a disease that damages her memory. Her husband is left to try and capture a perfect, lasting moment of their love.
Heigl most recently starred in One for the Money and can be seen this spring in The Big Wedding opposite Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams and Ben Barnes.
A Moment to Remember will begin shooting this spring with Mark Amin, Scott Lambert, Scott Steindorff and Cami Winikoff producing and Peter Fruchtman, David Higgins, Scott LaStaiti, Miky Lee and Judi Levine and Dylan Russell executive producing.
