One For The Money News
Principal photography on Katherine's new movie "One For The Money" is set to begin in the Pittsburgh area in just over a week and production teams have been busy gearing up for filming. Much of the movie will be shot in downtown Ambridge and surrounding areas beginning on July 12th and will last for approximately 50 days.
Location manager Shawn Boyachek has been busy scouting locations for various scenes in the movie and on Friday, June 25th was spotted with a team of a dozen crew as they checked out a famous local bridge. The green steel beams of the Kittanning Citizens Bridge that crisscross over the Allegheny River have been used as a backdrop in a number of movies and television shows. Boyacheck revealed to Pittsburgh Live that subject to PennDOT permits, the bridge will be closed in September for filming.
Agents Nancy Mosser Casting have also been busy recruiting for extras and minor roles in the movie. Staff recently visited the World Class Boxing Gym on Eighth Street in Ambridge and owner Tom Yankello told the California Chronicle, "I guess there's a boxing scene in the movie, so they wanted to pick some boxers from my gym and the mixed-martial arts gym we have downstairs." The boxing scenes are expected to be shot at the end of August.
Author Janet Evanovich, who wrote the best selling novel on which the movie is based, told the New Zealand Herald recently that she was excited "One For The Money" would soon be on the big screen. "I'm thrilled because Katherine Heigl is going to star as Stephanie Plum," she said.
