Cheryl Strayed’s Wild getting the Movie Treatment

Witherspoon's production company, Pacific Standard, recently acquired the film rights to Cheryl Strayed’s memoir “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail”.

Apparently, “WILD" has the making of a potential cinema hit. The premise sounds solid, and the story gives enough prospects for silver screen spectacle.

WILD tells the story of Cheryl Strayed who is quite inexperienced hiker, decides to hike 1,100 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert to Oregon.
The trip itself is the real center of the story with some interesting people she encounters along the way, plus the time she spends totally alone.

The novel has a huge fan base, reaching number 1 on The New York Times best seller list. No doubt, fans of the book are looking forward to seeing this book-to-movie adaptation, according to Deadline, Witherspoon will play the lead role of Cheryl Strayed, and will also co-produce it together with Bruna Papandrea. The author of High Fidelity and About a Boy, Nick Hornby, may pen the adaptation. This will likely ensure that the movie stays close to the book.
