Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum: First Look

Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum

Take a look at the first promo picture of Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum, Janet Evanovich’s famous character. The One for the Money movie, based on Evanovich’s first Stephanie Plum novel, is currently shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette has the scoop on the locations around town where filming has been taking place. They’ve also spotted Sherri Shepherd, who’s playing Lula, ex-hooker and assistant to Stephanie. If you want to see even more of Heigl as Plum, Grey’s Gabble has a bunch of pictures of her on the movie set.

In One for the Money, a down-on-her-luck Stephanie Plum becomes a bounty hunter at her cousin Vinnie’s bail bond business in Trenton, New Jersey. The movie has a tentative release date of summer 2011.

So what do you think of Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum? I know a lot of people wanted Sandra Bullock for the role, but do you think Heigl can pull off the feisty Jersey girl?

UPDATE 4/12/2011: One for the Money has been postponed until 2012. The new release date is now January 27, 2012.

    I thought Erica Durance from “Smallville” would make a gerat Stephanie. She is more of a natural beauty who can still look great even after one of Stephanie’s normal days. Katherine may be fine and I will check the movie out if and when they finally release it.
