Reese Witherspoon’s ‘Wild’ Dated for Awards Season

Fox Searchlight has dated the Reese Witherspoon starrer “Wild” for a Stateside launch on Dec. 5. — a prime release spot for Oscar consideration.

“Dallas Buyers Club” helmer Jean-Marc Vallee directed the drama based on Cheryl Strayed’s hit memoir of the same title. The book recounts Strayed’s 1,000-mile hike alone on the Pacific Crest Trail following years of destructive behavior in the wake of her divorce and her mother’s death.

Witherspoon came on board the project in mid-July when Searchlight acquired rights to Nick Hornby’s adaptation of Strayed’s New York Times bestseller.

Laura Dern, Thomas Sadoski, Gaby Hoffman, Kevin Rankin and Michiel Huisman also star. “Wild” is produced by Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard banner with River Road Entertainment’s Bill Pohlad.
