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.

Emmy Winner and Producer
But this talented actress also has a lot on her plate going forward.

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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

You think that true love is the only thing that can crush your heart; that will take your life and light it up or destroy it. Then you become a mother.
