Little Women fame Florence Pugh is all set to star in a new adaptation of Emma Donoghue's novel, The Wonder. 

Donoghue's novel Room was adapted in 2015 for the Oscar-winning film of the same name.

"The Wonder revolves around a young girl in 1859 Ireland, who stops eating and drinking but still lives without ailments. A nurse named Lib Wright travels to the small village in the Irish Midlands to witness the strange phenomena. What ensues is a biting psychological thriller, and a meditation on good and evil," the book's synopsis reads. 

A Fantastic Woman director Sebasti'n Lelio will direct from a script by Alice Birch. Birch previously wrote the screenplay of the 2016 drama Lady Macbeth.

The Wonder's production will begin in August in Ireland.

Meanwhile, Pugh will next be seen in Black Widow and Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling.
