*“Selma” director Ava DuVernay has cast Oprah Winfrey to star in “A Wrinkle In Time,” an adaptation of the Madeleine L’Engle fantasy classic novel that has a script by Oscar-winning “Frozen” writer and co-director Jennifer Lee.

“A Wrinkle In Time” follows a young girl whose government scientist father has gone missing after working on a mysterious project called a tesseract, which involves being transported to a fifth dimension with mysterious inhabited planets. The girl takes part in a search for her father and sees some incredible creatures along the way.

Winfrey is in final negotiations to play Mrs. Which, according to Deadline Hollywood. Kevin Hart and Amy Adams are also said to be in the running for roles.

Winfrey was also directed by DuVernay in “Selma” and the two co-created and executive produce the upcoming series “Queen Sugar” on Winfrey’s network OWN.
