From Lingerie Sales To Bounty Hunting – Katherine Heigl In The One For The Money Trailer

Janet Evanovich has published seventeen novels starring Stephanie Plum, the lingerie saleswoman who took a job in bounty hunting when she fell on hard times. According to the author herself:

If Mickey Spillane wrote Archie and Veronica, Stephanie would be Betty.

I’ve not a read a single word of any of these books, and they may well be rip-roaring reads of the r’ighest r’order, but the characters don’t sound like they’ve been rooted in any sort of emotionally plausible reality.

Perfect, then, for a Katherine Heigl star vehicle.

One For the Money was adapted from the first Plum book (let’s see if you can guess any of the sequels’ titles). It was directed by Julie Anne Robinson, a veteran of British TV, and has had almost as many missed release dates as it has credited writers.

But it looks set to come out now. In January.

Does anybody else hear that klaxon?

I hope we’re on for a good ol’ romp, an exciting adventure and zippy character comedy that lets a female character not only appear in some half-decent action scenes, but to own them. Because, you know, hope is free.

But with that cold January release coming, something tells me it would have been more apt to give Ms. Plum her own TV show. In fact, I expect she’ll eventually get one.

Give it five years, six max.
