Tennant To Helm Heigl’s “Adaline”

Director Andy Tennant (“The Bounty Hunter,” “Fool’s Gold”) has come onboard to helm the Katherine Heigl immortal rom-com effort “Adaline” for Lakeshore Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

Set at the beginning of the 20th century, the story follows a young woman caught in an accident that renders her immortal. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man whom might be worth taking a chance on. The project was previously titled “The Age of Adeline” when first announced back in May.

Mills Goodloe and Sal Pascowitz penned the script while Steve Golin, Alix Madigan, Sidney Kimmel, Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will produce. Shooting kicks off early next year.
