Fox Searchlight Pictures has acquired the worldwide rights to distribute the film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, starring Reese Witherspoon. The best-selling memoir follows Strayed, still reeling from the death of her mother and the failure of her marriage, as she undertakes a pretty epic hike (1100 miles!) on the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert to Washington State.
