Katherine Heigl has handed herself her next starring role after snapping up the movie rights to her favorite book. The star will play a woman who bonds with a dog after her husband dies in “Lost And Found.”
She reveals, “I’ve optioned a book and there’s a role for me. I love the story so much. It’s called ‘Lost And Found’ about a woman whose husband dies suddenly of a heart attack and she goes to this small island off Maine and finds this dog. It’s sort of about redemption and healing saving herself and this dog.
“I have five dogs and I’m a big animal person so the book is interesting because parts of it are from the dog’s perspective which I loved. In that way, it spoke to me because I give my dogs personalities like if they were a person this is who they’d be.”
