Fresh off a surprise Emmy win that even her mother said didn't stand a chance in hell of happening, the loquacious Katherine Heigl is on cloud nine.
She's busy filming the fourth season of Grey's Anatomy as well as a new romantic comedy, and has just acquired the film rights to the bestselling novel "Lost & Found," according to Variety.
Through her production company, Heigl plans to produce an adaptation of the Jacqueline Sheehan book along with her mother and manager, Nancy Heigl.
"Lost & Found" is about a psychologist who moves to a secluded island off the coast of Maine after the death of her husband. It is unclear whether Heigl intends to appear in the film as well as serve as its producer.
Regardless, Heigl set up her company in the aftermath of the major critical and commercial success of Knocked Up, the comedy she starred in this summer.
Best know for his role as Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy, and for her eagerness to have her surname pronounced correctly, Katherine Heigl's next major movie role will be in the romantic comedy 27 Dresses.
