Ava DuVernay Announces ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Release Date with #MannequinChallenge Video
Director Ava DuVernay got in on the Mannequin Challenge fun on the set of her latest film, A Wrinkle In Time.
The film, based on Madeleine L’Engle’s classic children’s book, stars rising star Storm Reid as the book’s main character, Meg Murry; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as her mother Dr. Kate Murry; and Chris Pine as Meg’s dad and Kate’s husband, Dr. Alex Murry.
Until now, we had no idea when the film was due to hit theaters, but thanks to a new mannequin challenge video she posted, we not only know that, but also have visual proof of how massive and diverse the Wrinkle cast and crew (dubbed #TeamWrinkle by Ava) are.
A Wrinkle In Time cast also includes Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis and Mindy Kaling.
“It’s just a classic story, the kind of legacy of the book, and fans who love it and when you hear about why for such personal reasons,” DuVernay told Collider about what drew her to the project. “It’s a story with a girl at the center — a girl who time travels, travels the universe in search of someone she loves, her father, and in the process she finds herself.”
