Katherine Heigl to produce adaptation of novel Lost & Found

Knocked Up star Katherine Heigl has snapped up the film rights to the best-selling novel Lost & Found.

The actress – who last week won an Emmy for her role on Grey’s Anatomy – is set to produce the novel with her mother and producing partner, Nancy Heigl.

Jacqueline Sheehan’s book, published by HarperCollins imprint Avon A, focuses on a widowed psychologist who moves to a remote Maine island and works in an animal hospital after her husband dies. Katherine is said to have contacted the agent as soon as she read it.

It is not known whether Katherine will star in the project, but, according to Variety magazine, we can look forward to seeing her next in Fox 2000 production, 27 Dresses.
