“Five Feet Apart” scribes Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis are set to pen the script for CBS Films’ new feature about social media sensation Esther the Wonder Pig.
The true story film deals with how a couple adopts what they believe is a pigmy pig. Esther joins the family at five pounds and then grows to 650 inspiring the local community and millions of online followers in the process.
The couple opened the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, where they could care for Esther and other animals in need. Jack Leslie and Lauren Shuler Donner will produce.
