After working together on the movie Selma and collaborating again on a new series for OWN called Queen Sugar (set to premiere on September 6), Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay are set to work together for a third time, according to ELLE.
The pair is now taking on the children’s classic A Wrinkle in Time, says ELLE, part of a “science-fiction/fantasy series called the Time Quintet” that was penned by Madeleine L’Engle in 1963.
ELLE reports that Winfrey is in final negotiations to play the part of Mrs. Which, the “wisest of three mysterious characters who help two children find their lost father in another dimension.”
While ELLE says the character is portrayed as a light in the book, we’re pretty sure Winfrey will take the character to a whole new level — just as DuVernay will do the same to the entire film.
Be sure to keep an eye out for any further information about the film — THL certainly will!
