Katherine Heigl finds ‘Lost’ option

Actress and mother to produce adaptation

Katherine Heigl has optioned film rights to the bestselling dramatic novel “Lost & Found” for her new production banner and will produce it with her mother and producing partner Nancy Heigl.

Jacqueline Sheehan’s novel, 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. Book is in its eighth printing.

Heigl is said to have contacted the author’s agent after reading the book. It’s not yet known if she may star in the pic.

Thesp has been ramping up her production company in the wake of her turn in “Knocked Up” this summer, which principals said Thursday would be called Abishag.

Banner, which she founded with her mother, is producing an action-comedy with Spyglass and Nash Entertainment that’s set up at Fox 2000; project is a possible starring vehicle for the thesp.

Heigl, who won an Emmy on Sunday for her role as Dr. Izzie Stevens on “Grey’s Anatomy,” is also attached to star in Fox 2000 romantic laffer “27 Dresses.”
