Katherine Heigl Options Lost & Found

Actress Katherine Heigl (that’s "Hi-gull," as she pointed out at the Emmy Awards this past Sunday when an announcer botched her name) has
optioned the film rights to "Lost & Found," a novel by Jacqueline Sheehan
that was released earlier this year.

Sheehan is a psychologist and
essayist, and her earlier work includes a novel based on the life of abolitionist
and former slave Sojourner Truth. The
author’s website describes "Lost & Found" as "
a heart-wrenching
exploration of one woman’s stunning loss" when her "veterinarian husband dies
at a stunningly young age," as well as "a stunning, shattering work that gently
probes the human psyche." Prepare to be
stunned, obviously. Anyway, the heroine
gets a dog, which, as responses to tragedy go, represents a nice change from
Jodie Foster’s approach in The Brave One.

Heigl won an Emmy this past Sunday
for her role as Dr. Izzy Stevens on Grey’s
, and critics raved about her performance in Knocked Up. Her producing
partner is her mother, Nancy Heigl.
