“We’re very excited to join our friends at Lakeshore and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment in bringing One For The Money to the big screen. And we’re delighted to be working again with Katherine Heigl, who is the perfect actress to play Janet Evanovich’s smart, gutsy and funny heroine.”Said Rosenberg,
“Janet Evanovich has created an extraordinary literary character in Stephanie Plum. Katherine Heigl is the perfect actress to bring Stephanie to the screen. Gary Lucchesi and I are thrilled to be reunited with her after our wonderful experience on The Ugly Truth. This is our second collaboration with Sidney Kimmel and we are looking forward to many more. Having worked on several films with Lionsgate over the years, we know that One For The Money is in the best possible hands.”Said Kimmel,
“We are thrilled to be partnering again with Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg on this exciting project. One For The Money will be a great second collaboration. With Katherine Heigl lending her tremendous talent to Janet Evanovich’s character, we foresee a great film in the making.”The deal was negotiated for Lionsgate by Rob McEntegart, Senior Executive Vice President, Motion Picture Group, and Wendy Jaffe, Executive Vice President, Business & Legal Affairs, Acquisitions & Co-Productions; and by Eric Reid, Lakeshore Entertainment Chief Operating Officer, on behalf of the filmmakers.
