Credit Katherine Heigl for trying something a bit out of her wheelhouse? In 'One for the Money,' the controversial leading lady -- last seen onscreen as part of the ensemble in 'New Year's Eve' -- takes on the role of Stephanie Plum, the famed Regular Jane-turned-bounty hunter at the heart of Janet Evanovich's best-selling series of books. Translation: this isn't a romcom! In fact, Heigl isn't even blonde; she is packing heat and wearing a leather jacket, however, in what looks like a distaff take on Robert De Niro's bounty hunter role in the now-classic 'Midnight Run' (minus all the ex-cop stuff; that goes to Jason O'Mara as her charge/ex).
A new trailer for the Jan. 27 comedy-thriller-romance has debuted exclusively here at Moviefone, highlighting Heigl's bad-ass turn, as well as Debbie Reynolds' dinner-shooting ways and Sherri Shepherd as a hooker with a heart of gold. Watch below.
'One for the Money' is out in theaters on Jan. 27.
