Jacob Tremblay just keeps on winning the mom lottery. The 9-year-old Room actor has signed on to star in Lionsgate's adaptation of R.J. Palacio's children's book Wonder alongside InStyle's June covergirl: the incomparable Julia Roberts.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Wonder tells the story of 10-year-old Auggie Pullman (Tremblay's character), a boy with facial disfigurations who enrolls in the fifth grade at a private school for the first time after years of homeschooling. Roberts is set to play Auggie's mother.
