The Walt Disney Studios just 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. I always love to hear breaking announcements as a movie comes together. It’s like my version of a football draft only instead of muscle men, we have singers and dancers. Both versions have their appeals, but my heart will always be with the movies.
There are some HUGE HUGE HUGE names attached to this project – including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.
Here’s the official synopsis:
After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.
This isn’t Reid’s first time on the big screen. In fact, Storm can be seen in 12 YEARS A SLAVE where she played Emily, AMERICAN GIRL: LEA TO THE RESCUE and SLEIGHT.
We are just getting started with A Wrinkle in Time. Little is known and there are actually NO production photos as of yet since they are still finalizing casting. Can’t wait to watch this one unfold and then eventually take the family to a night out to the theatre.
