This is beyond exciting!
Disney has tapped Ava DuVernay to direct A Wrinkle In Time, an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's beloved fantasy novel.
You can add this to a growing list of projects DuVernay's been offered, including a sci-fi film starring Lupita Nyong'o as a UN worker who falls for a mystery woman who turns out to be an alien. The script for A Wrinkle In Time is by Oscar-winning Frozen writer and co-directer Jennifer Lee.
