The upcoming drama Wild from director Jean-Marc Vallée is offering a different type of role for Reese Witherspoon, seen here in the first photo from the film. While she is best known for taking on comedies, this drama was a true challenge for the actress, as it recreates the true-life story behind lone hiker Cheryl Strayed's novel of the same name, which recounts her personal journey throughout the wilds of Oregon.
In the summer of 1995, the novice 26-year-old hiker set out to trek the formidable Pacific Coast Trail by herself, hoping to overcome her own personal demons, which included drug use, a recent divorce, and the death of her mother. Jean-Marc Vallée recently spoke about the actress' transformation for the part, which he likened to Matthew McConaughey in the recent Dallas Buyers Club, which Vallée last directed.
