The actress is now set to star in the thriller "Face Blind." Penned by Dominic Harari and Teresa De Pelegri, the story centers on a psychologist with the rare affliction where she can't tell people by their faces (if you think this is far fetched, famed neurologist Oliver Sacks actually has this ailment as well). Things get crazy as she becomes the target of a stalker who has been making life miserable for one of her patients, and because this is a Katherine Heigl movie, her husband thinks she's crazy. OH MEN.
If this all sounds vaguely familiar, well that's because it is. Last fall, Milla Jovovich dropped a straight-to-DVD movie "Faces In The Crowd" that essentially is the same thing. Except she plays a woman who gets mugged, hit on the head, becomes struck with faceblindness and then doesn't know who's out to get her. Frankly, we'd rather watch that movie -- as terrible as it seems -- if only to find out what Marianne Faithfull does in it. Before "Face Blind" has even rolled, Heigl has been pwned. [Deadline]
