Lionsgate has updated their synopsis for "One for the Money." Not that this is much news because all of you who have read the books knows what the movie is about, but it still gives me hope that the otherwise dormant state of this movie over at Lionsgate is getting some small signs of life. Yay!!!
"A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum's got plenty of attitude, even if she's been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie (Katherine Heigl) turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company... as a recovery agent. True, she doesn't even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn't stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny's (Patrick Fischler) biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli (Jason O'Mara) - yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school.
Nabbing Morelli would be satisfying payback - and a hefty payday - but as Stephanie learns the ins and outs of becoming a recovery agent from Ranger (Daniel Sunjata), a hunky colleague who's the best in the business, she also realizes the case against Morelli isn't airtight. Add to the mix her meddling family, a potentially homicidal boxer, witnesses who keep dying and the problem of all those flying sparks when she finds Morelli himself... well, suddenly Stephanie's new job isn't nearly as easy as she thought.

Lionsgate has just given us enough info to wet our whistle...let's hope it's not months before they gives us another drink!! Cross those fingers and toes people that this is just the beginning of an amazing marketing campaign. (Okay, so it's only a synopsis, but I'm thinking big here trying to get those positive vibes out there.) ;)
