Hornby, Witherspoon To Go “Wild”

Author Nick Hornby has signed on to pen the script adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s inspiring memoir “Wild” at Pacific Standard and River Road Entertainment.

The story follows a woman who tries to rebuild her shattered life by taking on an 1100-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State.

Despite no experience in long-distance hiking, she succeeded and in the process pulled herself back together. Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea will produce, and Witherspoon is expected to star.
