Open Disney movie auditions for Wrinkle in Time

Disney’s science fiction fantasy, “A Wrinkle in Time” is being directed by Ava DuVernay ( “Selma“).  The film is an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s story, “A Wrinkle in Time,” which was originally published in 1963. The book was the first in a series of books about the Murry and O’Keefe families. The story focuses on a young girl whose scientist father goes missing while working on a secret project called a tesseract. In the book, 13 year old Meg Murry’s classmates and teachers see her as a troublesome and stubborn student. Her family knows that she is emotionally immature but also sees her capable of doing great things. The family includes her beautiful scientist mother, her absent scientist father, her athletic 10-year-old twin brothers, Sandy and Dennys; and her five-year-old brother Charles Wallace Murry, a child prodigy genius who can sometimes read Meg’s mind. The book won literary awards including the Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. The script for the Disney movie is being penned by Frozen screenwriter Jennifer Lee.
