The novel, which is set in the, “Irish Midlands, 1859 and follows an English nurse, Lib Wright (Pugh), who is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle – a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation. The Wonder is a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.”
A Fantastic Woman director Sebastián Lelio is set to direct the pic.
Pugh is set to star in a lot of things coming up – Don’t Worry Darling for New Line, the Zach Braff directed Good Person (which should be filming by the end of the year), the Apple TV+ package Dolly, and Universal’s The Maid.
