Emmy-‐winning and Golden Globe nominee Katherine Heigl (KNOCKED UP, 27 DRESSES), Alexis Bledel (GILMORE GIRLS) two-‐time Oscar nominee Tom Wilkinson (THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, MICHAEL CLAYTON), two-‐time Tony Award nomine Linda Emond (JULIE & JULIA) and Grace Gummer (FRANCES HA, LARRY CROWNE) are set to star in the new dramedy, JENNY’S WEDDING, written and directed by Mary Agnes Donoghue (BEACHES), it has been announced by producers Donoghue, Gail Levin and MM Productions’ Michelle Manning. JENNY’S WEDDING is being financed by Merced Media Partners and PalmStar Media Capital and executive produced by PalmStar’s Kevin Frakes, Merced’s Raj Brinder Singh and Stuart Brown, as well as Lauren Selig.
The Solution Entertainment Group’s (“The Solution”) Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel are also executive producing the film and will handle international sales for JENNY’S WEDDING.
JENNY'S WEDDING revolves around Jenny (Heigl) who causes a massive sea-‐change in the lives of her closely knit, highly conventional family when she finally decides to marry.
A pretty and engaging woman, everyone is baffled by Jenny's lack of a love-‐life, and her parents (Wilkinson, Emond) particularly have been anxious for her to settle down, but when the announcement comes that she is finally going to wed, her choice of partner tears the family apart. In order to reconnect, everyone including Jenny, must reinvent themselves. “I am proud to bring writer/director Mary Agnes Donoghue's poignant story to life. Her vision of the family dynamic is unique, inspiring and highly entertaining, an we couldn't have assembled a better cast to bring the complexities of these characters to life, in what will surely make a highly impactful and very commercial film that will strike a chord with audiences everywhere,” said Manning.
