Elba has previously said that he’d accept the role of the super spy if it was offered to him, although during a new interview on Good Morning America, the British star has suggested that he feels he may be too old.

“I keep saying if it were to happen it would be the will of a nation because there hasn’t been any talks between me and the studio about any of tha. But everywhere I go people want that to happen, so…. But if I’m really honest man, »

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. »
