Julianne Moore signs on to adaptation of Brian Selznick’s ‘Wonderstruck’
Brian Selznick’s bestselling book “Wonderstruck” is headed to movie screens, and Julianne Moore has signed on to the project, Deadline reports.
Selznick’s hefty illustrated children’s books have earned him an adoring fan following. “Wonderstruck,” published in 2011, followed 2007’s “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” which was adapted as the movie “Hugo.” Earlier this year, Selznick published his latest, “The Marvels.”
The movie version of “Wonderstruck” will be directed by Todd Haynes. Haynes, whose most recent film is the Oscar-buzzy “Carol,” previously worked with Moore on “Far From Heaven” and “Safe.”
Moore won an Oscar in February for her role in “Still Alice.” This winter she’s on the big screen in “Freeheld” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2.”
