Katherine Heigl To Star In 'A Moment To Remember' A Remake Of A Movie Based On A TV Show For 'The Sessions' Director Ben Lewin

A Moment To Remember Katherine Heigl

Though “The Sessions” didn’t turn out to be the awards contender many predicted -- Helen Hunt’s nod for Best Supporting Actress notwithstanding -- when it premiered last year at Sundance, it still impressed a hell of a lot of people and now its director has already set-up his follow-up film.

THR is reporting that “The Sessions” helmer, Ben Lewin will remake the 2004 South Korean film “A Moment To Remember,” itself based on the Japanese TV series “Pure Soul.” Described as a romantic drama, Lewin has nabbed none other than rom-com-queen Katherine Heigl to star as the “fashion designer who is stricken with a disease that wipes away her memory, forcing her husband to desperately try to give her one last memory of their love.” So yeah, get a box hankies ready.

Now, while the combination of Heigl and this kind of treacly premise turns us off, we’re going to give Lewin the benefit of the doubt. Even if the film sounds like it’s actually a remake of last year’s Channing Tatum-starring “The Vow.” Production is looking to start sometime in late spring, presumably for a festival run early next year. Anyway, if you have a couple hours to spare, here's the entire Korean version of the film below.
