Two Kristin Hannah Works Adapted

1492 Films has picked up the film rights to author Kristin Hannah’s latest novel “Home Front” says Deadline.

The story follows a Blackhawk helicopter pilot in a crumbling marriage who is forced to leave her husband and children for a tour of duty in Iraq. Chris Columbus is attached to direct.

At the same time an adaptation is underway on Hannah’s earlier novel “The Things We Do For Love”, the story of a disillusioned and childless divorcee who forms a bond with a pregnant and recently homeless teen. Abigail Breslin is being eyed for the role of the teen.
