Angela Lansbury To Play Katherine Heigl's Daughter

Angela Lansbury will be playing the daughter to Katherine Heigl‘s character in the upcoming flick Adaline… really.

In the pic, Katherine plays the title character, who was killed in a car accident, until a simultaneous lightning strike brought her back to life and physiologically locked her in her late 20s, according to Deadline.

Adaline “lives a solitary existence until she meets a man worth losing her immortality to grow old with.”

Angela will play Adaline’s daughter, who needs her mother’s care as her health declines.

    Ugggghhhhh come oooonnnn….the infamous lightning strike brings immortality and then she has to choose b/w staying immortal or having true love? Personally I prefer my stories with a little originality. Of course I love Angela Lansbury, but I’m not sold on this idea.

    The Legendary Angela Lansbury with her amazing talent, 3 Oscar nods, 5 Tony wins, 6 Golden Globes and 18 Emmy nominations deserves much better than this.

    Cool. About as good as 80% of the concepts that developed into movies. Besides, they have a terrific actress in Angela Lansbury.

    I think it sounds interesting. The whole concept and story is a bit different. People are always bashing Heigl for something I am sure this won’t be any different but at least they won’t be able to say she is doing the same thing. This story is very much not a romantic comedy, and before that One For The Money isn’t either. Hope this is good – Angela Lansbury I am sure will be amazing.

    Ron – how can you say she deserves much better than this – the movie hasn’t even been made. You have a two line premise. For all you know it could be a great movie. Equally it could be a lousy movie. But it is way too early to tell that. I think it sounds interesting. At the very least the fact she is playing the daughter is itself something that should be interesting to see. I like Heigl as an actress as well.

    @Steven: I have nothing against Heigl I like her in fact.
    But this is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button for poor, instead of David Fincher as a director you’re getting the guy who directed such ‘classics’ as The Bounty Hunter and Fool’s Gold among others.

    THANK GOD for not any romcom. Katie is such an amazing actress and I want her to explore more – watching some of her scenes in Grey’s Anatomy gives you chills because she’s so good so I’m glad she’s going to different roles!
