Florence Pugh has booked another book-to-screen adaptation set in the 1800s!
The 25-year-old actress is set to star in The Wonder, based off of the 2016 novel by Emma Donoghue, Deadline reveals.
Set in the Irish Midlands in 1859, The Wonder “follows an English nurse, Lib Wright (Pugh), who is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle – a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation.”
Sebastián Lelio is set to direct with production beginning in August in Ireland.
This is Florence‘s second adaptation set in the 1800s in recent years. She starred in Little Women in 2019, with the plot set in 1868.
If you missed it, be sure to check out Florence in the new Black Widow trailer, ahead of it’s July release. She’s reportedly set to reprise that role in the upcoming Hawkeye series on Disney+, though it hasn’t been confirmed, yet.
She also recently wrapped Don’t Worry Darling with Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles!
