Katherine Heigl Drops Out of Adaline


Looks like another Hollywood ingenue will have to give birth to Angela Lansbury. Deadline reports that Katherine Heigl has dropped out of the fantasy drama Adaline, where she was supposed to play a woman given immortality by a freak lightning strike. The movie (which Heigl and her mother were producing with Andy Tennant onboard to direct) was already casting up and set to start in March; Deadline says that rumors have circulated that Heigl was fired from the film, though official word is that she withdrew to spend more time with her adopted daughter. Lakeshore Entertainment intends to replace the actress soon, so Amy Adams, now you know who's been calling you all day. [Deadline]
