another "and julia roberts" role :-(

so sad.

but really, with all her movies tanking one cannot even expect they greenlight a movie like wife 22 with julia as a lead when it's probably doing numbers like the latest sarah jessica parker comedies...

at least i hope she'll do the train man movie - another supporting role but hopefully more substantial.

I don´t share your negativity.

The book is a joy. The director is very talented. And her role is very emotional.

I´m really excited about this !!!!

Wonder Adaptation Plucks Julia Roberts For Lead Role Opposite Room’s Jacob Tremblay


Confined to a dark and squalid Room in 2015, Jacob Tremblay stole the hearts of moviegoers with a raw, emotional turn in Lenny Abrahamson’s award-winning drama. It’s a performance that hasn’t gone unnoticed, either, what with the young actor in line to play the lead in Stephen Chbosky’s Wonder.

Best known for helming The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Chbosky’s latest will have Tremblay headlining another adaptation, given that Wonder is lifted from the critically-adorned novel penned by R.J. Palacio. In it, the youngster will take point as August Pullman, a schoolboy plagued by an extraordinary facial deformity, and The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Julia Roberts has been tapped for the role of Tremblay’s mother.

In attendance at Cannes to promote Jodie Foster’s crime drama Money Monster, the casting of Roberts is a major coup for Lionsgate and Mandeville’s picture, and if Tremblay’s mother-son chemistry with Brie Larson in Room is any indication, we could be in for something, ahem, wonderful come 2017.

Ensuring Stephen Chbosky’s final feature is an emotional roller coaster, screenwriter Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness) has been elected to adapt Palacio’s beloved novel for the screen. Below, you’ll find a brief synopsis of the defining journey that awaits Tremblay’s troubled student:

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face.

As Wonder begins to pick up steam, look for Julia Roberts to star alongside George Clooney et al. when Money Monster opens next Friday, May 13.

About Julia's role in Wonder


Isabel and Nate Pullman: Auggie and Via's parents. They care deeply about Auggie and Via, but due to Auggie's problems, Via is often unintentionally left out. Isabel and Nate work with Auggie to make sure going to private school instead of being home schooled is ultimately his decision.

how is julia's role? does the mom has an interesting story or it's just in the background?

if it's something like cher's role in mask (she won as best actress in cannes) it could be interesting.
but if it's a three scenes thing i'm not interested... i mean, i'm sure the book is good and perks was nice (but the book was so much better) but i'm so tired of watching her wasting her talent with generic and undeveloped characters...

don't even ask. lol
this will not be a lead role.
this will amount to the role laura dern played in fault in our stars. thankless but at least, it could be a decent film. which is more than what we can say for mother's day.
julia is far from interested in pushing her craft nowadays. can't blame her. her life is too good.

Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay to film 'Wonder' in Vancouver



Academy Award winner Julia Roberts and child star Jacob Tremblay will be in Vancouver this July to film Wonder, the movie adaptation of R.J. Palacio’s tear-jerker young adult novel.

Tremblay, the nine-year-old Langley actor who earned raves and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance opposite Brie Larson in the Oscar nominated Room, will play Auggie Pullman, a young boy with a facial deformity who struggles to fit in at a new school.

Roberts will play Tremblay’s mother.

Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) will direct a script written by Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happiness, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty).

Wonder is scheduled to begin shooting July 18 in Metro Vancouver under the production title “Washer,” according to the Directors Guild of Canada production list.

Owen Wilson in Talks to Join Julia Roberts in 'Wonder'


'Room' breakout Jacob Tremblay is starring in Lionsgate's adaptation of the R.J. Palacio YA novel.

Owen Wilson is in negotiations to join Julia Roberts in Wonder, Lionsgate’s adaptation of the R.J. Palacio YA novel.

Jacob Tremblay, who had a breakout performance as the young star of Room opposite Brie Larson, will star in the film as Auggie Pullman, a young boy who was born with a facial deformity. For the first time, Auggie is going to a mainstream school, starting the fifth grade at Beecher Prep.

Wilson will play the boy’s father opposite Roberts, who is playing the mother.

Director Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) is helming from a script by Jack Thorne and Steve Conrad. Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are producing via their Mandeville Films banner.

The book has been a massive best-seller since hitting stores in February 2012 via Knopf Books for Young Readers and has sold 2 million copies.

Wilson was last seen in Zoolander 2 and, in a change of pace, starred in the action movie No Escape with Pierce Brosnan. He has Masterminds, the ensemble comedy with Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig and Zach Galifianakis, waiting (and waiting) to be released, but the movie is mired in Relativity’s bankruptcy woes.

Wilson is repped by UTA and Hirsch Wallerstein.

This pairing is a bit add. Owen is only one year younger than Julia but his overall screen presona read much more immature than his actual age. I was hoping for someone like Ethan Hawke or Timothy Olyphant but you never know maybe this could work.

I think they will make a nice pairing.

I´d like they made a good friendship. Just for the fact that there would be a connection between Julia and Wes Anderson. He is the director I most want Julia works with.
