Fox Searchlight Begins Filming “Wild”

“Dallas Buyers Club” director Jean-Marc Vallee has begun principal photography on “Wild” from Fox Searchlight Pictures

An adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Reese Witherspoon plays a woman who falls into reckless and destructive behavior following her own divorce and the death of her mother.

She makes a rash decision – to hike more than 1,000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. In the process she reacquires her life.

Thomas Sadoski (“The Newsroom”), Michiel Huisman (“World War Z”), W. Earl Brown (“The Lone Ranger”), Gaby Hoffman (“Veronica Mars”), and Kevin Rankin (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) have also joined the cast.

Nick Hornby penned the script, while Witherspoon, Bruna Papandrea and Bill Pohlad will produce. Shooting has begun on location in Oregon and California this week.
