The roster for Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time adaptation continues to impress. The film’s most recent casting announcement includes comedian Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) portraying a character named Happy Medium, a man who is able to view different times and places. The children’s classic already has Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw and the addition of Galifianakis makes for a wonderful ensemble. Bellamy Young (Scandal) and André Holland (Moonlight) flesh out the team.
If you are not familiar with the classic story of A Wrinkle in Time it centers around a young girl named Meg Murry (Storm Reid). Meg is a young school girl who embarks on an epic adventure through space and time with her younger brother and a school friend. The adolescent adventurers are desperately searching for Meg’s father, a scientist who has mysteriously disappeared years prior.
Shooting is set to begin later this month in Los Angeles.
