After playing guest parts in such TV programs as The Thundermans, NCIS: New Orleans, and Chicago P.D. as well as supporting roles in movies like the aforementioned 12 Years, Storm Reid is set to bring Meg Murry, the protagonist of the classic Madeleine L’Engle book, to life on the big screen.

Winfrey will portray Mrs. Which, while Witherspoon and Kaling will play Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who respectively.

Published in 1962, A Wrinkle in Time is described on L’Engle’s official site follows:

Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. She claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a tesseract, which, if you didn’t know, is a wrinkle in time.

Meg’s father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?
