28 Casting Ideas For the New A Wrinkle in Time Adaptation
Madeleine L'Engle's classic fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time is getting the big-screen treatment — again! OK, technically the 2004 version is a TV movie, but still. All new actors will take the main roles, originally played by Katie Stuart, Gregory Smith, and David Dorfman. Selma's Ava DuVernay is set to direct the film, which has been scripted by Frozen's Jennifer Lee. Even if you're skeptical about the remake, you have to admit that sounds like a winning combination.
In case you're not familiar with the book, the story follows Meg Murry, a 13-year-old girl whose scientist father has gone missing. Together with her crush, Calvin O'Keefe, and her brother, Charles Wallace Murry, she attempts to find him. This is a fantasy, of course, so the group ends up being transported to another dimension, where they encounter beings like Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and The Man With Red Eyes. Here are 28 actors who we think could take on the main roles!
