Admittedly, I was never much of a reader as a kid. I’ve always been partial to film, and it was a tough sell to get me to step away from adaptations of Stephen King novels, to actually start reading the source material. That said, for some reason, A Wrinkle in Time was an exception. Sure, it was required reading for school, but it was one the first times I can remember where I actually enjoyed reading a book, and simply could not put it down. As maturity slowly set in, I became a more avid reader, with film still being the medium of choice, and so hearing that Ava Duvernay, one of the best filmmakers working today, was adapting the first book I remember loving as a kid, well that was pretty exciting news.

The film recently wrapped production, and Duvernay shared her excitement via a barrage of image filled tweets, showcasing several character and cast photos, as well as behind the scenes shots from set. The images aren’t exactly mind bending, but it shows how much fun was had on set, and showcases Duvernay’s pride in her project. The film is set to be more of a re-imagining of Madeleine L’engle’s original novel, likely with some contemporary twists. A Wrinkle in Time stars Storm Reid as Meg Murray, Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit, Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who, Chris Pine as Mr. Murry, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Mrs. Murry, Zach Galifianakis as The Happy Medium, André Holland as Principal Jenkins, Levi Miller as Calvin, Deric McCabe as Charles Wallace, and Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, and Will McCormack.

The film is set to release on April 6th, 2018 and is easily one of Bro Knows most anticipated movies of that year. Check out the synopsis of the book below via Amazon:

When Charles Wallace Murry goes searching through a ‘wrinkle in time’ for his lost father, he finds himself on an evil planet where all life is enslaved by a huge pulsating brain known as ‘It’. How Charles, his sister Meg and friend Calvin find and free his father makes this a very special and exciting mixture of fantasy and science fiction, which all the way through is dominated by the funny and mysterious trio of guardian angels known as Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who and Mrs Which.
