Stars Out As Movies Filming In Pittsburgh

AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) – The streets of Ambridge are getting ready to experience a little star power.

Filming is set to begin this week in the Beaver County town on the movie “One for the Money.’’ The movie stars actress Katherine Heigl and is based on the first novel in a series of books by Janet Evanovich.

The movie is set in Trenton, N.J., but will be filmed at six different locations in Ambridge through August.

Heigl isn’t the only star in town, though.

Teen heartthrob and “Twilight’’ star Taylor Lautner is also filming a movie in western Pennsylvania. “Abduction’’ is a thriller about a young man who discovers the people who raised him are not his real parents. It is being shot in Mt. Lebanon and other Pittsburgh area locations.
