60608: Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler Filming in Temecula

One day shy of the 225th anniversary of the first unmanned hot air balloon flight over Annonay, France, silver screen beauty Katherine Heigl and 300 star Gerard Butler climbed into the wicker basket of an aerodynamic apparatus as cameras rolled on The Ugly Truth in Temecula, California. According to IMDB, the romantic comedy will arrive in theaters on April 13, 2009.

Fans who wish to follow in the Emmy Award winner’s footsteps can hop aboard a hot air balloon during a one-hour sunrise flight at the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival on June 6 – 8, 2008. Even those with their two feet firmly planted on the ground will have their spirits lifted during the three-day event as an array of recording artists, including Kenny Loggins, Blake Shelton and John Waite take the stage.
