Date: 28th June 2016
Owen Wilson is in final negotiations to join Julia Roberts in Lionsgate’s “Wonder.”
Jacob Tremblay, who broke out last year in “Room,” is also attached to star as August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that prevented him from going to a mainstream school earlier in life — and then became an unlikely hero when he entered the local fifth grade.
Roberts plays Tremblay’s mother in the adaptation of Raquel J. Palacio’s novel and Wilson’s will portray the father. Lionsgate had no comment on the casting.
Lionsgate recently dated the movie for April 7. Stephen Chbosky is directing from a script by Jack Thorne and Steve Conrad.
