Julia Roberts’ drama “Wonder” has been bumped from April 7 to November 17, TheWrap has learned.

Stephen Chbosky (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) is directing from a script by Jack Thorne and Steve Conrad, who each had a hand in adapting the novel by R.J. Palacio. “Room” star Jacob Tremblay is playing Roberts’ son.

Tremblay will play Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with a facial deformity who encounters bullies while attending school for the first time.

Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are producing “Wonder” under their Mandeville Films banner. The book has sold more than two million copies worldwide.

April 7 also sees the opening of “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” “Going In Style” and “Sleight.” “Wonder” will now open on the same day as Warner Bros.’ “Justice League” is scheduled.

Roberts will actually lend her voice to a character in “Smurfs.” Her other most recent credits include “Money Monster,” “Mother’s Day” and “Secret in Their Eyes.” She is represented by CAA.
