Patrick Dempsey is Made of Honor

An Honorable Soul
According to Variety, Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has signed a deal to star as the lead in Columbia Pictures' romantic comedy Made of Honor, being produced by Neal Moritz's Original Film.

A director has not yet been hired for the project. The film is a male-driven romantic comedy about a guy (Patrick Dempsey) whose dream girl asks unexpectedly him to be her maid of honor. In an attempt to win her heart, he agrees.

You have to love guys getting stuck in the "friend" mode? Sounds as if this character does what any male would do in that situation - accept in hopes that he can use the time leading up to the wedding to get close to her and win her over. Makes for a funny movie, we're guessing.

Made of Honor is based on a speculative script by Adam Sztykiel and was given the green light after a rewrite by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont.

Dempsey's other upcoming films include Freedom Writers, alongside Hilary Swank, and Enchanted, a family fantasy musical with Amy Adams and James Marsden. We are certainly looking forward to seeing one of the wonderful leading men of Grey's Anatomy on the big screen!

As awesome as it would be to have Ellen be the dream girl, I'm sure their contracts with Gray's wouldn't allow it.

I can't wait to see it either! Maybe Ellen Pompeo could be the "dream girl".......or does that go against some ABC rules.........just a thought!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.

Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
