The good people at Entertainment Weekly have blessed us with their first-ever romcom-themed issue. What does a romcom-themed issue entail, you ask? Reunions, lots and lots of precious cast reunions, one of which saw the stars of 27 Dresses – minus Judy Greer – come together 11 years after the movie was released.

If your memory’s a touch foggy, here’s the gist of this ultimate romcom.

Jane (Katherine Heigl) is always the bridesmaid, never the bride – in fact, she’s been a bridesmaid 27 times and she froths it – she loves organising someone’s special day and dreams of planning her own wedding… preferably with her nature lovin’ boss George (Edward Burns). Her sister, Tess (Malin Åkerman) suddenly rocks up and charms (lies so much) the socks off George who falls extremely hard for her. A few scenes later, the two are engaged and Jane has to plan their wedding. MEANWHILE, wedding journo Kevin (James Marsden) is recruited to write about Tess and George’s wedding but instead finds himself absolutely absorbed in Jane’s hectic life.

Chuck in some unhealthy sibling rivalry, some petty as hell stunts, a regrettable article humiliating Jane, BENNIE AND THE JETS, and the inevitable happy ending and you’ve got yourself a romcom.

11 years later, Heigl wants a sequel.

“I have an idea that I’m pitching to them [her co-stars]. Anne’s already in, I’ve talked to Anne, I want to do a sequel,” she revealed.

Anne is Anne Fletcher, director of 27 Dresses. 

“Unfortunately we can’t quite get the rights… FOX. But, I think it would be awesome to see, seriously,” she continued.

Despite FOX being in the way, Heigl – much like Jane would – has planned this entire sequel out.

“What are their lives like 10 years later? Do they end up together [Tess and George], I personally think they do. I don’t know why, I just think they do end up together and I think they have like three kids. Or at least two, and she’s made Jane the godmother, every time.” 

“So Jane has to plan the christenings, and the baby showers, and the gender reveal parties, and the whole thing.”

Just imagine an overly organised and eager to please Jane running around town trying to throw the most stupidly extra gender reveal parties.

In Heigl’s sequel, Jane wouldn’t just be godmother to her sister, she’d also be godmother to all her friends – her 27 bridesmaids which, though lovely, kinda sucks for Jane because she’s apparently struggling to conceive.

You can listen to Heigl’s thoughts in full below.

Not going to lie, wouldn’t mind another Heigl romcom.

In other adorable reunion news, the stars of My Best Friend’s Wedding also reunited for EW’s issue more than 20 years after the film’s release and yes, they all still look as gorgeous as ever. That’s Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Dermot Mulroney, and Rupert Everett. 

Swipe, swipe, swipe.

Another reunion?

Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for 500 Days of Summer. 


Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, and Kristin Scott Thomas from Four Weddings And A Funeral. As EW revealed, they’re actually filming a “short-film sequel” set to premiere during NBC‘s Red Nose Day USA special telly event.

Feel the love.
