Few movies on the horizon are as exciting as Ava DuVernay’s Disney adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. It’s a book almost everyone knows and DuVernay is quietly building an incredibly impressive cast.


We’d already reported that Oprah Winfrey would be playing Mrs. Which in the film, but now The Hollywood Reporter says Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling have been cast as her cohorts, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who, respectively.

In the story, Which, Whatsit and Who help a girl and her brother as they travel the galaxy trying to find their father. Those roles have yet to be cast.


DuVernay, who did the incredible Selma, will start shooting the film early next year. No release date has been set.
