Reese Witherspoon’s ‘Wild’ to Open San Diego Film Festival (EXCLUSIVE)

The San Diego Film Festival has set Reese Witherspoon’s “Wild” as its opening night film on Sept. 24.

The festival has also selected drama “You’re Not You,” starring Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel as the closing night film on Sept.  27 with Duhamel attending.

The festival is in its 13th year.

“Wild” will have its world premiere Friday at the Telluride Film Festival and screen at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 8. The film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (“Dallas Buyers Club”), is based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir about her decision, after years of reckless behavior, to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own.

Fox Searchlight will release “Wild” in the U.S. on Dec. 5.

Swank stars in “You’re Not You” as a successful classical pianist diagnosed with ALS. Duhamel plays her husband and Rossum portrays a college student who takes a job providing assistance. Warner Bros. has not yet dated the film.

The San Diego festival will feature more than 100 screenings and be held at the Reading Theater in downtown and the ArcLight Cinemas in La Jolla.
