Katherine Heigl is attached to star in “One for the Money”, an adaptation of the first of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels, for Sony Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment reports Variety.
Heigl will play Plum, a rather average single New Jersey girl and lingerie buyer recently laid off. To make ends meet she sets out to become a file clerk at a Bail Bonds office but ends up taking the only position available – a bounty hunter.
A previous attempt was made to adapt the property with Reese Witherspoon but that incarnation fell apart. Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith penned the screenplay which Liz Brixius will polish. Tom Rosenberg, Wendy Finerman and Gary Lucchesi are producing.
