The film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's memoir 'Wild' will be brought to the big screen by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
The movie adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir “Wild” has found a studio and will begin filming this fall.
Fox Searchlight Pictures will bring the movie to the big screen and producer and star Reese Witherspoon called it an “extraordinary company that continually strives to bring original, inspirational films to the marketplace.”
“We are so excited to be working with Fox Searchlight to bring Wild to the screen,” the actress said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Searchlight presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula said in a statement of their own, “We have long been huge fans of this visceral, inspirational and moving personal story with such a strong female perspective. It has been a dream of the studio to work with Reese Witherspoon and we are thrilled to be partnered with her, Bruna Papandrea, Bill Pohlad and Nick Hornby.”
As mentioned by the studio, “About A Boy” and "An Education" screenwriter Nick Hornby is penning the script for the film. The project has yet to secure a director.
