I just read an article that the producers are replacing Katherine Heigl with Kirsten Dunst in the movie

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.

Does anyone else have any info?

For those of you interested, Knocked Up made an estimated 9.8 million its first night out, just behind PotC: At World's End. Though the movie's gross per theatre average is higher than PotC, most likely due to the fact it's geared toward an adult audience.

She's on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly. Several great photos and a pretty candid interview.

From Kheigl.com:
Katherine's new movie Knocked Up landed at number 2 on the US box office chart, taking $29.3 million during its opening weekend against a production budget of only $30 million. In doing so it became the fifth-best opening ever for an R-rated comedy and came in ahead of all other new releases. Per theatre it grossed more than the number 1 movie - Pirates of the Caribbean.

Exit polls also revealed that Katherine was one of the main reasons audiences turned up to see the movie. Humour topped the list, with storyline second, but 35% of respondents highlighted Katherine as the big screen draw.

Is "Knocked Up" a Knockoff?


http://www.tmz.com/2007/06/06/is-knocke ... /#comments

A Canadian author is suing Universal Pictures and director Judd Apatow, alleging that the story for the hit movie "Knocked Up" was taken directly from her book of the same name.

Rebecca Eckler claims that she shopped around her 2004 book to be made into a movie. In the middle of the process, she learned of the Apatow project. The script that was making the rounds, she alleges, had a picture of a martini glass with a pacifier around the stem -- the same as on the cover of her book.

Eckler, who told her tale in this month's Maclean's magazine, cites other similarities -- including the fact that the Katherine Heigl character is an up-and-coming television reporter, and the main character in Eckler's book is an up-and-coming newspaper reporter. She also says that the movie and book have a secondary female character in common -- the person that both main characters go to for advice -- and that both of the secondary characters have screaming children.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in January, alleging copyright infringement and seeking unspecified damages.

Judd Apatow, through his reps, released this statement: "The book 'Knocked Up' is very different than the film 'Knocked Up.' The book is about a woman who gets pregnant by the fiance that she loves on the night of her engagement party. The film is a very different story; the film is about a one-night stand between a pot smoking slacker and an ambitious young woman that leads to a pregnancy and their attempts to get to know each other. Anyone who reads the book and sees the movie will instantly know that they are two very different stories about a common experience."

Universal Pictures had no comment.
