In the film, Stephanie Plum (Heigl) can’t catch a break. At 30, she finds herself newly-divorced, recently laid-off, and living with her hamster in Trenton, N.J. Broke and desperate, she lands a job working for her slimy cousin and his bail bond business. In need of fast cash she latches on to his biggest case a local cop (O’Mara) wanted for murder who just happens to be the guy that broke her heart in high school. Stephanie gets resourceful and tough, as she is swept up in a suspenseful world of murder, deceit, with a bit of romance.
Sunjata will play a disciplined veteran bounty hunter.
Julie Ann Robinson is directing from a script by Liz Brixius.
