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.
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.
