Congratulations to the amazing Storm Reid on landing the role of Meg Murray in Disney’s live action adaptation of the classic book by Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time.
Said director Ava DuVernay,”After an extensive search that spanned multiple dimensions, we’re overjoyed to welcome Storm Reid to WRINKLE IN TIME as our beloved “Meg.” Storm is a tremendously talented young actress who embodies the hopes, dreams and spirit of a character much loved by audiences worldwide for generations. I can’t wait to work with Storm as we chronicle Meg’s epic quest, alongside Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who. Tesser well!”
Reid is no stranger to powerful roles in film. She played Emily in 12 Years a Slave, appeared in American Girl: Lea to the Rescue, and most recently in the film Sleight. She’s joining Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit, and Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who. DO YOU SEE HOW AMAZING THIS CAST IS? On top of all this, the film is being directed by Ava DuVernay, who directed Selma, and features a script written by Frozen writer Jennifer Lee.
The film begins production later this year. We can’t wait to see this adaptation.
