Coming onboard to accompany "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl, Malin Akerman and James Marsden have both signed on to take starring role in romantic comedy "27 Dresses", which Spyglass Entertainment is developing for Fox 2000.
While Heighl has been reported to play a young woman serving as a bridesmaid for years but never a bride, Akerman will portray her sister who is engaged to the man whom Heighl's character falls for. Meanwhile, Marsden is said to become a man who will change her bridesmaid status for good.
Filming is slated to start May this year in New York and Rhode Island under the direction of Anne Fletcher who will helm from script penned by "The Devil Wears Prada" scribe Aline Brosh McKenna. Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum, Jonathan Glickman are all set to produce with Erin Stam serving as co-producer.
