This is Plum Exciting!

Here in Tennessee, the title of my post is a very likely expression that you may hear following a good bit of news. We like to use "plum" as an indication of degree. If you are really, really tired; you are plum exhausted. If it has been a while since your last meal, you are plum starved.
So, truly I am plum excited with the news that the first Stephanie Plum novel, One for the Money, is being made into a motion picture. Katherine Heigl will play Stephanie Plum, the New Jersey bounty hunter. Sherri Shepherd will play her prostitute-turned-bounty-hunter best friend, Lulu. The photo above is of Heigl on the movie set.

I have to confess, my ultimate dream for my books is that they might become movies someday. Just in case Hollywood comes calling, I have most of the cast put together:
Marlene-Ashley Judd

Dorothy-Jenna Fisher from The Office

Allison-Reece Witherspoon

Glen-Billy Ray Cyrus

Patsy-Paula Deen

Marlene's Mom-Jenna Rollins

Marlene's Dad-Robert DuVall

Mark-Benjamin Bratt

I've actually gone further with the casting, but will not bore you with the entire list. With such an all-star cast, I just know it would be a hit! Anyone got any pull at MGM? I'd just be plum tickled to see the Cutie Pies Chronicles as a movie! Anybody else got the cast put together for the screenplay adaptation of their work?
