First Wild trailer promises a lot of Reese Witherspoon walking around
The first trailer for the upcoming 2014 drama ‘Wild’ was released this week, the project is based on the biography of Cheryl Strayed and her 1,000+ mile journey through the Pacific Crest Trail. The film comes from Director Jean-Marc Vallée, written by Nick Hornby based on the popular Cheryl Strayed memoir. Starring in the film are Reese Witherspoon, Gaby Hoffmann and Laura Dern.
According to the studio the film picks up with Strayed after the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, when Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
The film is set to release this December from Fox Searchlight.
