'One for the Money' trailer: Is Katherine Heigl the Stephanie Plum we were hoping for?

  • Pop2it
The first trailer has been released for "One for the Money," the movie adaptation of the first book in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. Former "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl is the aforementioned main character.

What do you think of her Stephanie Plum?

We have to say, as big fans of the book series - we are as disappointed as we expected to be when we heard she was cast as Stephanie. Her Jersey accent comes and goes, she doesn't look at all right for the part and (at least from what we can tell from the trailer) her "chemistry" with Ranger and Morelli (a driving force in the books) is nonexistent.

Also - whose idea was it to cast Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur? The woman may be 79 years old, but she looks considerably younger. We always pictured Grandma Mazur as more bony and pretty old. Like a

Katherine Heigl Is "One For The Money"

  • SneakPeek
Sneak Peek the new poster for "One For The Money", a new crime thriller, based on the 1994 novel by author Janet Evanovich.

Directed by Julie Anne Robinson, "One For The Money" stars Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara, Debbie Reynolds, Daniel Sunjata and Sherri Shepherd:

"...'Stephanie Plum' is out of a job and there isn’t much work for an ex-lingerie buyer. After caving under pressure from her mother, Stephanie goes to her bail bondsman cousin 'Vinnie', looking to do filing work. Eventually with the help of some friends and the best bounty hunter in the business, she slowly learns what it takes to be a badass bounty hunter. Along the way she also gains the unwanted attention of a heavy weight boxer, befriends some hookers, steals a car, and has to deal with a pushy mother, crazy grandmother and father who would rather not watch..."

Trailer for The Locksmith

  • HeyUGuys
The Playlist have posted the official trailer for indie dramedy, The Locksmith.

This film, written and directed by Todd and Brad Barnes premiered to decent reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it even picked up the Best of Next Award.

The Locksmith stars Anslem Richardson, Ana Reeder, Stephen Rannazzisi, Cesar De Leon, Mary Beth Peil and Michelle Krusiec.

Synopsis: Mike (Richardson) is a locksmith. He’s also a prisoner on work release, but you wouldn’t know it. He’s just trying to focus on his house calls and reconcile with his ex-girlfriend—until Margo (Reeder) hijacks his day. A live-wire kook who’s certain her boyfriend is cheating on her, Margo bulldozes Mike into spying on the alleged cad. The result: an all-day adventure with a stolen vehicle, a visit to an unlikely drug dealer, and a low blood-sugar attack.

It sounds like a perfectly solid indie drama.

Sundance 2010 Review: Homewrecker

Rating: 6.5/10

Writers: Brad Barnes, Todd Barnes

Directors: Brad Barnes, Todd Barnes

Cast: Anslem Richardson, Ana Reeder, Stephen Rannazzisi

Mike is a locksmith. He’s also in jail. As part of a work release program, he gets to spend his days cracking locks around New York City, returning at night to the work release barracks. He has temporary freedom that he’s not even remotely trying to mess with. The only time he strays is to spy on his ex-girlfriend, Courtney, but even that has more going on than just the usual stalking-an-ex bit. But Mike’s straight-arrow life is about to get turned upside down by the next person to require his services. Her name is Margo. And Margo hasn’t played things straight – well, maybe ever.

News from Sundance about Digital Exhibition

What are film festivals doing in increase distribution possibilities for their filmmakers and how are they using digital technology to do this and enhance their own position at the same time?

1) Sundance Film Festival is debuting films through VOD under a label called "Sundance Selects". Three films that premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival will debut simultaneously into 40 million Us households, via cable systems and satellite TV. The films will then be available for viewing for 30 days. The films include Michael Winterbottom's and Mat Whitecross's sociopolitical documentary The Shock Doctrine, Benny and Josh Safdie's comedy Daddy Longlegs, and Daniel Grou's drama 7 Days (Les 7 Jours du Talion).

"Moving the storytelling of the Sundance Film Festival beyond 10 days in Utah remains a top priority for us," said actor Robert Redford, founder of the Sundance Institute, about bringing the event to a wider audience, including selected screenings of Sundance films in other Us cities.

Sundance 2010 Next: Move Over SXSW

The lucky inaugural eight include: Habib Azar's Armless, Linas Philips's Bass Ackwards, Sultan Sharrief's Bilal’s Stand, Katie Aselton's The Freebie, Barnes Bros' Homewrecker, Adam Bowers's New Low, Michael Mohan's One Too Many Mornings and Eyad Zahra's The Taqwacores - which has nothing to do with the docu film Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam: (same subject, different film). - If you see or hear me calling this the Miranda July's (you'll have to have seen Me and You and Everyone We Know) section it's because of its no greater or lesser than emblem ( < = > ). John Cooper officially had a stroke of genius with the announcement of the section earlier in the year, and the batch of eight shows the festival is certainly getting back into the "indie" spirit of things again or, it will be seen as Sundance stealing some of the

Sundance Reveals 2010 Non-Competition Slate

On Wednesday the Sundance Film Festival unveiled the films competing in late January 2010. Yesterday they announced the rest of the line-up of independent films vying for attention for industry types and the curious public.

The entire list of 53 films is below, but here are a few that stood out to me from the premieres alone:

Mumblecore directors the Duplass Brothers, have a new, untitled movie starring an unusually high-profile cast compared to their usual improvisational crew. John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei, Jonah Hill, and Catherine Keener. Reilly and Keener are actually in two films at the 2010 festival.

The Company Men, starring Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Rosemarie DeWitt about corporate downsizing.

Rodrigo Cortes’ Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds as a man buried alive in a coffin. I’ve read the script and its great. More on that as soon as I can.

Sundance 2010 Non-Competition Line-Up Looks Strong

Yesterday we got the list for the films playing in competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and today we get the rest of the films that will be featured and there are quite a few that make 2010 look much stronger based on pedigree alone than I have seen in quite some time. Variety has a big write-up detailing the categories and more on the festival right here, but I am just going to offer up the titles and let you sort it all out.

The titles already in the RopeofSilicon database are linked.

Premieres

All films are from the United States unless otherwise noted Abel (Mexico-u.S.), the directorial debut of actor Diego Luna, written by Luna and Agusto Mendoza, about a peculiar young boy who, as he blurs reality and fantasy, takes over the responsibilities of a family man in his father's absence.

2010 Sundance Film Festival Out-of-Competition Films: Next

Yesterday we gave you a list of all the films playing in-competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. We now have the list of the films playing out-of-competition and they’re divided up into four categories: Premieres, Next, Spotlight, and Park City at Midnight. Since combining these lists would be a lot to read for just one article, we’ve broken it up to make it easier on your eyes. You’re welcome.

The “Next” category features filmmakers and actors you’ve probably never heard of before, but that doesn’t mean these films aren’t worth seeing. On the contrary, because there are only eight of them, folks attending the festival may want to find some time to try and check a couple out because part of what makes film festivals so great is you can discover a hidden game and bring it to the attention of others.
