Reese Witherspoon’s ‘Wild’ dated for awards season

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Reese Witherspoon's latest movie Wild will be released on Dec. 5, which is a prime spot for Academy Awards consideration.

Variety reported that Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallee has been working on this drama which is based off of Chery Strayed's New York Times best-selling memoir of the same title.

The movie will follow the story of Strayed's 1,000-mile hike alone that took place on the Pacific Crest Trail. She went on this personal journey following years of destructive behavior after going through a divorce and the death of her mother.

Witherspoon, who will be playing the role of Strayed, was cast in July shortly after Fox Searchlight managed to acquire the rights to Nick Hornby’s screenplay based off the memoir.

Another potential award winner Rosewater has just found U.S. distribution through Open Road Films. It is known that Rosewater will be released in the fall season, but an official release date has not yet been announced, the Los Angeles Times added. The film is the directorial debut of Jon Stewart and is also based on a memoir.
