Reese Witherspoon is returning soon with Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling novel, with a script from top author Nick Hornby (About A Boy, High Fidelity). Now the trailer for the movie has arrived, which you can see below.
The movie is about how Strayed hiked 1,000 miles alone on the Pacific Crest Trail following years of destructive behaviour in the wake of the dissolution of her marriage and her mother’s death. The synopsis says the movie ‘powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.’
Jean-Marc Vallée (Young Victoria, Dallas Buyers Club) directs, with a late 2014 release planned.
