Today in Los Angeles, CA, production for Disney’s live-action A Wrinkle in Time begins. The film stars Oprah Winfrey (“Selma”, “The Butler”) as Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon (“Wild, “Walk the Line”) as Mrs. Whatsit, Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project,” “Inside Out”) as Mrs. Who, Chris Pine (“Star Trek Beyond,” “Hell or High Water,” “Into the Woods”) as Mr. Murry, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Beauty and The Beast,” “Belle”) as Mrs. Murry, Zach Galifianakis (“Birdman,” “ The Hangover,”) as The Happy Medium, André Holland (“Moonlight,” “Selma”) as Principal Jenkins, Levi Miller (“Pan”) as Calvin, Deric McCabe as Charles Wallace, and introducing Storm Reid as the iconic literary character Meg Murry. Rounding out the amazing cast are Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, and Will McCormack.
The film is directed by Selma’s Ava DuVernay, and is designed as a reimagining of Madeline L’Engle’s classic 1962 novel. The beloved story follows Meg Murry, her brilliant brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin as they go on an adventure to an alternate dimension to bring home their father.
“Since Day One, this experience has shimmered with the promise and possibility, the passion and power that only great stories offer,” said DuVernay. “And Madeline L’Engle’s book is a great story indeed. A cool, quirky tale of an imperfect girl on an otherworldly expedition that has been praised and banned, dissected and celebrated the world over for more than 50 years. On behalf of all the filmmakers, artists and craftspeople in our ‘Wrinkle in Time’ family, we are genuinely thrilled by and truly grateful for the opportunity to make this film together.”
We can’t wait to see this magnificent cast in action.
