From The Hollywood Reporter:
Kill Your Darlings writer-director John Krokidas will direct Lionsgate's YA adaptation Wonder.
The film is based on R.J. Palacio's best-selling 2012 novel about a 10-year-old named Auggie Pullman, whose facial difference has kept him from going to mainstream school. Now, he's entering fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and just wants to fit in, but he'll have to teach everyone around him that, as always, we are more than meets the eye.
Jack Thorne wrote the screenplay for the film, which is produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman via their Mandeville Films banner.
NOT YA NOT YA NOT YA MIDDLE GRADE IS NOT YA WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO GRASP AUUUUUUGH. Also, I really need to read Wonder.
