Katherine Heigl’s next big screen project, the comedy “One for the Money,” has been postponed again — this time indefinitely to duck potential competition.
The movie, based on Janet Evanovich’s bestselling novels, had originally been slated for a July 8 release opposite “Horrible Bosses,” which is chock full of A-listers, including Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey.
Lionsgate then pushed the release up to June 3, but that put Heigl in direct contention with “X-Men: First Class” — total blockbusters material and competition killer.
“We just want to find the right home for [the film],” a Lionsgate rep tells EW, “and that [date] didn’t feel like it.”
“One for the Money” co-stars John Leguizamo and Sherri Shepherd and follows Heigl as Stephanie Plum, a rookie bail bondswoman who ends up in pursuit of a “wanted cop from her romantic past.”
