Well we now know what Ava will be doing after shooting on her TV show Queen Sugar wraps. She’s gotten the nod to direct the classic YA novel A Wrinkle in Time for Disney studios!
Ava apparently had been the front runner for the position from day 1, and today it looks like Disney finally sealed the deal. Ava remains in talks to direct Intelligent Life, starring Lupita Nyong’o.
You may remember A Wrinkle in Time from your school days, it’s been a staple of school reading list for decades. The book by Madeline L’Engle tells the story of young girl whose father disappears while doing research on a tesseract (note to Marvel fans, it’s not same thing as the one in the Marvel-verse). The girl is forced to travel to the fifth dimension in order to find her father and she has interesting adventures along the way. It’s very beloved book and the comments I am reading on the internet are very positive on Ava helming the project.
Congratulations to Ava, I’m sure she will slay!
