Storm Reid

A Wrinkle In Time Casts Storm Reid

The 12 Years A Slave and Santa’s Boot Camp actress will play the lead role in the upcoming adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time.

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.

On top of being cast in such a highly-coveted role, the young starlet will also have the opportunity to act opposite such noteworthy talent as Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Academy Award-nominee Oprah Winfrey. 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?

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
