This could be an interesting combination. Karl Urban
and young & sweet Willow Shields
are set to star in the upcoming 3D fantasy film titled The Wonder
. The movie comes from director Ron Underwood
and, apparently it will include a lot of teenagers, magic, a rainbow, catastrophe and… well, China? Try to find some connection, or read the rest of this report for more details.
So at this moment, thanks to THR
, we know that The Wonder
will center on Shields’ character, 14-year-old Rachel who, together with two of her classmates, find the end of a rainbow which, magically, transports them to China.
There, they find themselves pursued by local authorities and a mysterious organisation.
With unexpected help from Consul William Stanley, played by Urban, the kids are able to elude their chasers but soon discover that their journey has triggered a major natural disaster.
Together with their new friend Cheng, played by Leehom Wang
, they find their way back home but still need to race against time to stop the global catastrophe.
Pretty confusing, you’ll admit, but what the hell – let the children play
Robert Sidaway, Iain Brown, Steve Sachs and Chun-Yi Yueh are producing. James M. Vernon of Media Funds Management and Hyde Park’s Ashok Amitraj will executive produce, and just in case you already like how The Wonder
