Acclaimed director Ava DuVernay (Selma) took to Twitter today to exuberantly announce that principal photography has ended on the big screen version of the classic young adult novel A Wrinkle in Time.
The film, based on the popular novel by Madeleine L’Engle is about a 13 year old girl named Meg whose life and family are turned upside down when her government scientist father goes missing while working on a secret project called a Tesseract. A device that folds both space and time. Meg enlists the help of her friends and a group of mysterious supernatural beings to try and rescue her father and stop an all-encompassing evil from spreading across the universe.
