Michael Foust recently sat down with Patricia Heaton and David Hunt, who produced and executive produced the adoption-centric film "Unexpected." Here is a look at their conversation:

  • A new film by the husband-and-wife team of David Hunt and Patricia Heaton has a life-affirming, adoption-centric message that reminds audience members that everyone is "known to God," they say.
  • The comedy film, Unexpected, is based on the book "Enslaved By Ducks," and tells the story of a couple battling infertility who accumulate various types of animals to try and fill the emotional void. Halfway through the film, the couple faces the possibility of adoption.
  • It stars Joseph Mazzello (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Social Network) and Anna Camp (The Help, 5000 Blankets) in the lead roles. Hunt directed it, and Heaton produced it.
