November 1, 2012


Ron Underwood (Mighty Joe Young) is set to direct Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd) and Willow Shields (The Hunger Games) in the 3D fantasy film The Wonder, says The Hollywood Reporter. Chinese actor Leehom Wang (Lust, Caution) will also star.

According to the trade, the film "focuses on 14-year-old Rachel (Shields) who, together with two of her classmates, find the end of a rainbow which, magically, transports them to China. There, they find themselves pursued by local authorities and a mysterious organisation. With unexpected help from Consul William Stanley (Urban), the kids are able to elude their chasers but soon discover that their journey has triggered a major natural disaster. Together with their new friend Cheng (Wang), they find their way back home but still need to race against time to stop the global catastrophe."

Robert Sidaway, Iain Brown, Steve Sachs and Chun-Yi Yueh are producing. James M. Vernon of Media Funds Management and Hyde Park's Ashok Amitraj will executive produce.
