Katherine Heigl HBO Movie The Knitting Circle

Katherine Heigl has signed on to do a different kind of project and make a cable movie for HBO that will be based on the Ann Hood book, The Knitting Circle. I never personally read the book, but from what I hear, it is downright heart wrenching. The Knitting Circle is actually about a mother who mourns the loss of her child and takes up knitting with a group of women, all of who take up the craft to distract them and deal with a devastating emotional event. The screenplay is being adapted by Craig Wright and no director has been locked into the project yet.
