Thorne Hired To Adapt “Wonder” Script

Jack Thorne has been hired to adapt R.J. Palacio’s 2012 best-selling debut novel “Wonder” for Lionsgate and Mandeville Films.

The story follows the adventures of 10-year-old Auggie Pullman, born with a facial deformity, as he enters a mainstream school for the first time and teaches everyone around him that we are more than meets the eye.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing. John August was previously linked as writer, but that’s no longer the case.
