Full Cast Of A Wrinkle In Time Announced By Disney
In addition to such previously-announced talent as Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, and Storm Reid, actors ready to play roles in the upcoming film are Andre Holland, Levi Miller, and Zack Galifianakis. Holland will play Principal Jenkins, Miller will portray Calvin, and Galifianakis is set to bring The Happy Medium to life in the movie:
Directed by Ava DuVernay (13th, Selma), the film is a reimagining of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel that takes Meg Murry, her brilliant brother Charles Wallace and their friend Calvin on an unexpected journey into alternate dimensions on a mission to bring home their father.
“Since Day One, this experience has shimmered with the promise and possibility, the passion and power that only great stories offer,” said DuVernay. “And Madeline L’Engle’s book is a great story indeed. A cool, quirky tale of an imperfect girl on an otherworldly expedition that has been praised and banned, dissected and celebrated the world over for more than 50 years. On behalf of all the filmmakers, artists and craftspeople in our ‘Wrinkle in Time’ family, we are genuinely thrilled by and truly grateful for the opportunity to make this film together.”
