Stephen Chbosky, the author of 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and director of its 2012 big-screen adaptation, is attached to direct 'Wonder' from a screenplay by Steve Conrad, reported Entertainment Weekly.
'Wonder' tells the story of 10-year-old Auggie Pullman (Jacob Tremblay), a boy with a facial deformity who enrolls in a private school after years of homeschooling.
Julia Roberts, 48, is set to play Auggie's mother in the book adaptation of R J Palacio. Mandeville Films' Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman will serve as producers.
Jacob Tremblay, nine, became a red carpet darling with his endearing presence as 'Room' scooped up prizes this awards season. The young actor played the role of a boy who finds it hard to come to terms with the reality after being rescued from an underground room where he was trapped with his mother by a kidnapper.
