Katherine Heigl Rendered “Face Blind”

Katherine Heigl is set to star in the Dominic Harari and Teresa De Pelegri-scripted indie thriller “Face Blind” for Maven Pictures says Deadline.

The former “Grey’s Anatomy” star will play a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces.

When a man who terrorized her most vulnerable patient stalks her, the psychologist can’t recognize him, and her husband thinks she’s the one who is going crazy. Heiglm Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray are producing.

If the premise sounds familiar, it’s nearly the same as that of last year’s direct-to-disc Milla Jovovich thriller “Faces in a Crowd”.
