Published back in the spring last year, Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trailer was one of the best-selling books of last year, chosen by Oprah Winfrey to launch Oprah’s Book Club 2.0.
But even before it was published, Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to turn it into a movie. Production is now officially underway, and Witherspoon has shared the first official photo from the set.
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her. »

Norma has invested all of their money in a run-down hotel that she has rechristened the Bates Motel. Former owner Keith Summers (W. Earl Brown) is not exactly pleased that Norma bought the hotel in »
