Katherine Heigl Gets a Life

Is Katherine Heigl going from rom-coms ... to rom-drams?

According to E! Online, the Grey's Anatomy actress is set to star in Life as We Know It, a film about two singletons who must come together to raise an orphaned child.

And fall in love, perhaps?

The film, which is set to be directed by Greg Berlanti, sounds like it might be a project that is ripe with dramatic possibility, but the really interesting thing about it? The Emmy-winning actress will also be co-producing the film with her mother, Nancy Heigl.

Nancy and Katherine Heigl recently formed a production company together.

Beautiful and Controversial

Ending months of rumors, Katherine Heigl is said to have signed a deal to return for the sixth season of Grey's Anatomy, though the star herself has not confirmed it.

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
