Owen Wilson to Co-Star With Julia Roberts in ‘Wonder’ (Exclusive)

27 June 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Owen Wilson is in final negotiations to join Julia Roberts in Lionsgate’s “Wonder.”

Jacob Tremblay, who broke out last year in “Room,” is also attached to star as August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that prevented him from going to a mainstream school earlier in life — and then became  an unlikely hero when he entered  the local fifth grade.

Roberts plays Tremblay’s mother in the adaptation of Raquel J. Palacio’s novel and Wilson’s will portray the father. Lionsgate had no comment on the casting.

Lionsgate recently dated the movie for April 7. Stephen Chbosky is directing from a script by Jack Thorne and Steve Conrad.

Producers are Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman through their Mandeville Films banner.

Palacio’s book has sold more than 2 million copies since it was published in 2012 by Knopf Books for Young Readers.

Wilson has been filming Alcon’s comedy “Bastards” with Ed Helms. »

Preacher Recap: Power Surge

12 June 2016 6:57 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Apparently, Preacher’s Jesse never saw Spider-Man. So, unaware that with great power comes great responsibility, he let his “gift” get the better of him this week and, as a result, damn near shot someone without ever laying a finger on a gun. Who? How? Wait, what? Keep reading, and I’ll (do my best to) explain.

Dowdle Brothers to Direct Heist-Thriller ‘Gafin Academy’

8 June 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Image Movers and Voltage Films have signed the “No Escape” filmmaking duo John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle to direct action-thriller “The Gafin Academy.”

The Dowdle brothers — whose credits include “Quarantine” and “Devil” — will direct from a script by Aaron Rapke and Stewart Kaye. The screenplay is based on Danny King’s novel, “School for Scumbags.”

The story centers on a habitual teenage delinquent who’s expelled from yet another school and finds himself hauled off to Gafin Academy, a reform school that’s host to thieves, bullies, arsonists and vandals. Rather than rehabilitating the students, the academy uses them to pull off a massive heist.

The Dowdles co-wrote, directed and produced “No Escape,” starring Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. John Dowdle directed 2010’s “Devil,” based on the story by M. Night Shyamalan with Drew Dowdle and Shyamalan producing for Universal.

Principal photography is set to commence in the fall, »
