Heigl in the ‘Money’

Actress' interest revives Columbia, Lakeshore project

Katherine Heigl is attached to star in “One for the Money” for Columbia Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment.

Heigl will play Stephanie Plum, an unemployed lingerie buyer who becomes a bounty hunter to make ends meet. Pic is based on the Janet Evanovich novel of the same name.

Evanovich’s Plum series is up to 15 novels, all with titles that have a number theme. A 16th Plum novel hits shelves this summer.

Col and Lakeshore were eager to reteam on another Heigl project after their recent collaboration, “The Ugly Truth,” earned more than $200 million in worldwide B.O.

Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to take on the role, but the project has been dormant for several years. Heigl’s interest has put the project back on the fast track, with Andrea Giannetti overseeing for the studio. Col and Lakeshore will next look to attach a director.

Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing “One for the Money” with Wendy Finerman (“The Devil Wears Prada”).

Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith penned the screenplay, and Liz Brixius has been brought onboard to do a polish.

In addition to her continuing gig on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Heigl has upcoming film roles in “Killers” for Lionsgate and “Life as We Know It” for Warner Bros.
