Starring Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts, and Owen Wilson, Lionsgate's next picture, Wonder, has added Mandy Patinkin to a pretty impressive cast. The film will be based on the New York Times bestseller by R.J. Palacio, and is being directed by Stephen Chbosky.
Lionsgate holds worldwide distribution rights to the film, and has an April 7, 2017 U.S. release date set. Patinkin will shoot this before the start of the next season of Homeland, which has been delayed to a 2017 premiere date.
Wonder tells the story of a yoyung boy born with significant facial differences preventing him from attending mainstream schooling. At the start of his fifth year in school, the boy must convince those around him that he is no different.
