Earlier in the week, the Walt Disney Studios announced that 13-year-old Storm Reid will play the lead role of Meg Murry in the upcoming Disney live-action adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A WRINKLE IN TIME.
Reid joins a cast which already includes Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who. The actors shared the official news on Twitter.
The film is directed by Ava DuVernay (SELMA) from a script by Jennifer Lee (FROZEN). Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand are producing the film, which will begin production later this year.
