Lest you worry that child actor Jacob Tremblay (Room) will once again suffer through a movie without a strong male role model, Variety reports that Owen Wilson might soon join Tremblay and Julia Roberts as a star in Wonder. Based on a popular book for young readers of the same name, the story follows the life of a boy with a facial deformity who leaves the comfortable confines of homeschooling to enter a local fifth-grade class. So, if you were hoping Wilson and Roberts were finally going to make that toothy-grin rom-com you’ve been fantasizing about since 1999, shelve the dream, and get the tissues ready for some inspirational tears.
