 Comment on John August to adapt WONDER for Lionsgate

Lionsgate is apparently in final negotiations to pick up R.J. Palacio's best seller Wonder with John August adapting  for the bigscreen. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing via Mandeville Films, reports Variety.

Wonder tells of Auggie, ten-year-old boy with a facial deformity that prevented him from attending a mainstream school. Now, starting fifth grade at a new school, he battles to convince schoolmates that he's like them, despite his appearance. The story explores bullying and is told from various points of view.

Lionsgate had no comment as the deal hasn't closed as yet. August has previously written screenplays for films like Titan A.E., Charlie's Angels, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Johnny Depp starrer Dark Shadows as well as the recent Tim Burton animation Frankenweenie.
