the independent film 'Jenny's Wedding' in Cleveland this month.
Somewhat mimicking the theater calendar, filming in Cleveland has shifted from summer blockbusters (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Draft Day) to autumn independent films (Miss Meadows). For the last week, Jenny’s Wedding, starring Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy, Knocked Up) and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, The Lone Ranger), has shot in the Northcoast city.
The film focuses on Heigl’s main character, Jenny, who shakes up the lives of her close-knit, status quo family when she announces she’s getting married – and who she’s getting married to. Wilkinson plays her father.
Mary Agnes Donoghue directs and produces, working from her own script. Donoghue scripted Beaches and White Oleander.
Heigl was spotted around town already, dining at Hodge’s downtown. According to reports, she spent some time with fans who recognized her, taking pictures and introducing herself as “Katie.”
The film shot in University Heights this week . The film took over the offices of Mayor Susan Infeld’s assistant’s office.
