Hmmm, looks like Disney’s going to do a film adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time. It was one of my favorite books while growing up… I read it again recently and it still holds up pretty well as a freaky, weird story. The BBC did a version of it which was absolutely wretched, so I really hope Disney doesn’t water it down. They did pretty well with the Narnia flicks so far, so we’ll see.
Jeff Stockwell has been hired to adapt author Madeleine L’Engle’s classic time-travel head trip, “A Wrinkle in Time,” for Cary Granat and his new Bedrock Studios.
L’Engle’s 1962 Newbery Medal-winning sci-fi novel revolves around teenager Meg Murry, her genius brother Charles Wallace and classmate Calvin O’Keefe as they launch an interplanetary mission to rescue the siblings’ missing scientist father. They are counseled along the way by the mysterious trio of Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which.
