Katherine Heigl to produce Lost and Found
The story, which follows a woman as she moves away after her husband dies, was written by Jacqueline Sheehan and will be produced by Heigl, Empire Online reports.
It is the next in an increasingly long line of projects for the TV and film star, who has been acting for many years but rose to prominence in her role as Dr Izzie Stevens in Grey's Anatomy.
She previously starred in the now-defunct cult series Roswell, in addition to the horror comedy Bride Of Chucky and last year's The Ringer.
Interestingly, Heigl also featured in what is believed to be the lowest-grossing film of all time - a thriller entitled Zyzzyx Rd.
According to Box Office Mojo, it was released in exactly one Texan cinema for six days back in March 2006, during which time it made $20 (£9.86) in ticket receipts.
