Ironing That Wrinkle

Before Ava DuVernay can direct Lupita Nyong’o in the Steven Spielberg-produced Intelligent Life, the Selma helmer is going to tackle A Wrinkle in Time.

Yes, the 1963 fantasy classic by Madeleine L’Engle is getting the silver-screen treatment, courtesy of Disney by way of Academy Award winner Jennifer Lee, the writer and co-director of Frozen.

For those of you who don’t/didn’t know (like me!), A Wrinkle in Time centers on a young girl whose father, a government scientist, goes missing after working on a mysterious object o.k.a. a tesseract. The tesseract turns out to have the power to transport a person into a fifth dimension in which all these unknown planets orbit  which, of course, she uses to join the search party for dear ol’ dad.

Go, Ava!
