Hollywood actor Reese Witherspoon is all set to star in the silver screen adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Nick Hornby is penning the script based on the true-life tale of Strayed’s journey to traverse the 1,100-mile Pacific Crest Trail alone after her mother died, her family fractured and her marriage failed, all at the tender age of 22.
Witherspoon, 36, will also produce the picture along with Bruna Papandrea and River Road Entertainment’s Bill Pohlad, reported Deadline. “Nick’s innate blend of humanity and humour are a perfect match for Cheryl’s raw emotional memoir. I look forward to collaborating with both of these talented writers to create a film full of honesty, adventure and self discovery,” Witherspoon was quoted as saying.
