Ava DuVernay is back at it again with the directing cap; this time she is set to direct Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time. You may remember that title from your elementary/high school reading list, if not, this classic novel follows the journey of a young girl as she attempts to find her father who has gone missing. Her government scientist father had been on a secret project called tesseract and a part of his mission was being transported to a different dimension to explore inhabited planets.
It is quite a bit to take in but do not worry, we know DuVernay with the help of Oscar-winning Frozen script writer Jennifer Lee will break it all down for us in this upcoming film.
But, the good news does not stop here! In early February, we heard a rumor that DuVernay would be directing the highly-anticipated Intelligent Life for Dreamworks, which was said to be possibly featuring Lupita Nyong’o. Well, the rumor has been confirmed! Production of this sci-fi thriller is now underway and will be scripted by Colin Trevorrow and his Jurassic World collaborator Derek Connolly.
Now, it still has not been confirmed which movie will hit the big screen first, but according to Deadline, they believe “A Wrinkle of Time” may be crossing the finish line first; either way, we are super excited and cannot wait to see what will happen next.
