Ava DuVernay Announces Release for ‘A Wrinkle in Time’
When Ava DuVernay makes an announcement, we’re all here for it.
And today, the EBONY Power 100 cover star released the date for her next directorial project, the children’s classic A Wrinkle in Time. But this wasn’t the traditional “Hey guys, [insert project title], comes out [insert date].” No, DuVernay and her talented team took the creative route and did it #MannequinChallenge style.
The film, which stars emerging actress Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine, centers on a young girl who is traumatized after the disappearance of her scientist father, years before. On her journey to find her father, her younger brother and a schoolmate are aided by a trio of supernatural beings.
A Wrinkle in Time hits theaters on April 6, 2017.
