A Wrinkle in Time movie adaptation will be coming to us even sooner than expected! The production team created a wrinkle in time to bump the movie date from April to March 9, 2018.

A Wrinkle in Time, the classic YA novel by Madeleine L’Engle, tells the story of Meg Murry and her younger brother Charles Wallace as they search for their missing father across space and time. Though Ava DuVernay’s is not the first movie adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time – it was adapted as a TV movie back in 2003 – it will be the first adaptation produced by a major company.
Meg Murry will be played by Storm Reid. Reid’s most notable film role so far has been a short role in “Twelve Years A Slave,” a film which skyrocketed the career of the incomparable Lupita Nyong’o.
Mindy Kalig, the star of “The Office” and “The Mindy Project” and the author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, will play Mrs. Who. Reese Witherspoon, a director and actress who starred most recently in “Big Little Lies” (though perhaps known best for her role as Elle Woods), will play Mrs. Whatsit. Oprah Winfrey, currently starring in “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” will play Mrs. Which.
