Perhaps, she wanted to act all along?
Life post-her own talk show is looking positively radiant with marquee lights for Oprah Winfrey, who has signed on to star in Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of the 1963 Madeleine L’Engle fantasy classic, A Wrinkle in Time, the story of a young girl whose father, a government scientist, goes missing after working on a mysterious object – a tesseract – that turns out to have the power to transport people into a fifth dimension in which all these unknown planets orbit.
The Big O will be feature in the project as Mrs. Which.
A Wrinkle in Time marks yet another occasion for DuVernay and Oprah to collaborate. The duo previously worked together on Selma, and – look at that – is soon to premiere Queen Sugar on OWN.
