Karl Urban has signed up to star in teen fantasy adventure film The Wonder 3D.

The Star Trek actor will join The Hunger Games' Willow Shields in the film which will be shot on location in China and New Zealand.

The Wonder follows three teenagers, led by defiant outsider Rachel (Shields), who after a bruising encounter with school bullies, joins forces with friends Grace, a Chinese girl, and Tane, a Maori boy to find a rainbow which takes them into another world.

British director Peter Hewitt, whose previous work includes Garfield and The Borrowers, will helm from a script by Ashley and Robert Sidaway.

Shooting is due to begin in October.

Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
