Star Trek's Karl Urban And Hunger Games' Willow Shields Join 3D Adventure The Wonder
What happens when Katniss' sister Primrose from The Hunger Games and Dr. Bones McCoy step across a rainbow? Sure, it sounds like an incredibly stupid, overly complicated bad joke, but really it's just the casting announcement for the new 3D adventure film The Wonder 3D.
In less cryptic terms, Variety is reporting that Willow Shields and Karl Urban have both signed on for the new movie, which is being helmed by Ron Underwood. The trade paper describes the plot of the project saying it's about "a 14-year-old (Shields) who, along with two of her classmates, finds the end of a rainbow. As they step inside the rainbow, it takes them away to China where local authorities and a mysterious organization are soon after them." Urban will be playing a "consul" who helps the main characters out in some way.
Underwood has spent the last few years directing almost exclusively for television, helming episodes of shows including The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Ugly Betty, Eli Stone, Reaper, No Ordinary Family, Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Harry's Law, Burn Notice and Once Upon A Time (and that's not even close to all of them). He used to direct features, having made films like Tremors, Mighty Joe Young and City Slickers, but left the big screen world after making The Adventutres of Pluto Nash in 2002 and the Usher movie In The Mix in 2005. His new film will be shot entirely in 3D and the company Pixomondo, which won an Oscar for its work on Martin Scorsese's Hugo, is wroking on the visual effects.
