Oprah & Ava DuVernay Teaming Up Again
Since partnering up on Selma, Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay have teamed up to bring Natalie Baszile’s novel Queen Sugar to the media mogul’s network. Now, the duo have signed on to work together again.
In addition to her TV series, DuVernay has also been tapped to direct the film adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time for Disney. Based on the 1963 fantasy book by Madeleine L’Engle, the novel centers on a little girl whose father goes missing after working on a mysterious project.
Winfrey will rejoin the director to play Mrs. Which, the oldest of the three celestial beings in the book.
Like Winfrey’s relationship with Tyler Perry, she and DuVernay not only seem to be great friends, but also great collaborators too.
