Why Is Katherine Heigl Asking Fans to Finance Her Next Movie?
First, a NyQuil commercial. Now, hitting fans up for money.
You don’t take a True Hollywood Story to tell you that Katherine Heigl’s storied career has hit another rough patch.
Heigl, 34, is asking fans for money to back her latest film Jenny’s Wedding. The one-time Emmy winner’s has been plagued by romcom flops and rumors of being “difficult” on set ever since departing her most famous role, playing Dr. Isobel “Izzie” Stevens on TV’s Grey’s Anatomy.
But we had no idea things were this dire.
The flick would see Heigl playing the lesbian lover of Gilmore Girls’ star Alexis Bledel. Producers reportedly need extra financial supports in the price bracket of $150,000 to complete shooting.
Katherine, who once commanded up to $15 million a film, needs the money by the end of March or the film won’t see the light of day.
