Katherine Heigl Has "Unforgettable" Experience With Director Denise Di Novi

Katherine Heigl Has

Directed by Denise Di Novi, "Unforgettable" - backed by Warner Bros - is releasing in India on Friday. The 38-year-old actress plays an unhinged ex-wife who has it in for her ex's new fiancé, played by Rosario Dawson.

Given how much trouble Katherine Heigl has had finding a new direction for her career since leaving Grey's Anatomy seven years ago, her go-for-broke turn in the formulaic thriller Unforgettable might open up some new possibilities for her as a supervillain in the booming comic-book adaptation market. "I could first get into (the role) by feeling compassion for her".

"I like to think of, you know, Halle Berry or someone I can't have".

"I think with every mother it's just this sort of perpetual mommy guilt that someone you're kind of not nailing it and to mess up his schedule", she said. "You have to take the humanity of the character to some point so that it's relatable".

"It ended up working so much more beautifully than I ever could have imagined and the fact that we wrapped up filming in December and now I have all this time with him to just be mom.it's such a blessing".

Besides boasting an all-star cast, Unforgettable marks the directorial debut of Denise Di Novi, best known for producing Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Dawson brings a warmth to Julia that makes you root for her even as you're face-palming, and Heigl's Tessa (who wears crazy-lady caftans at home, and strokes her computer - central to her nefarious schemes - as if it were a black cat) is an absurdly over-the-top creation who's fun to watch.
