Child actor Jacob Tremblay, who won many awards for his role in “Room”, is also attached to star in “Wonder” as August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that prevented him from going to a mainstream school earlier in life -- and then became an unlikely hero when he entered the local fifth grade, reports variety.com.
