By Garth Franklin Friday November 30th 2012 06:42AM

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.
