In news just in, Nick Hornby will be writing the script for Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Wild. Reese Witherspoon’s company has picked up the film, with Reese set to play Cheryl.
Wild’s book sales soared when selected by Oprah for her new Book Club, Oprah’s Book Club 2.0.
At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America - from the Mojave Desert, through California and Oregon, and into Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay in ruins at her feet.
Strayed faces down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and loneliness of the trail. Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humour, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
Earlier this year Witherspoon also picked up Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Nick Hornby is well known novels such as Fever Pitch and About a Boy. It is not the first time he has written the screenplay for someone else’s work; he has recently adapted Colm Toibin’s novel Brooklyn.
