Storm Reid could play the oldest daughter of the children, Meg Murry, in Disney’s upcoming A WRINKLE IN TIME adaptation.
That’s right — we have more exciting A Wrinkle In Time news for you!
Storm Reid is known for her performance as Emily in 12 Years A Slave (2013); landing the role of Meg Murry in the adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book could be a huge step in the young actress’s career. Read about Meg in the book summary below:
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?
This news comes after the recent announcement that Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon are both in talks to join the cast as well. Oprah Winfrey is confirmed to be playing Mrs. Which in the adaptation, which will be directed by the award-winning Ava Duvernay. The script will be written by Frozen‘s Jennifer Lee.
Production starts later this year. Keep up to date with A Wrinkle In Time news here at The Fandom!
