Ava DuVernay is bringing her amazingness to the folks over at Disney as she is set to direct a film adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time.
According to Deadline, the Selma director is joining forces with Frozen writer/co-director Jennifer Lee to bring the Madeleine L'Engle 1963 fantasy novel to the big screen. The film will follow a teenage heroine who embarks on an adventure to find her father, a government scientist, who mysteriously vanishes.
This isn't all that Ava has on her plate. She is also currently in talks to direct the sci-fi film Intelligent Life with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, and is already in pre-production on the upcoming OWN series Queen Sugar.
