'Frozen' director Jennifer Lee to adapt sci-fi classic for screen
Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed the 2013 box office darling "Frozen," will adapt Madeleine L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time" for an upcoming Disney film.
"Frozen" is arguably one of the best Disney films ever made, and the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. Jennifer Lee both wrote and co-directed the box-office mega-hit, setting some milestones for female directors along the way, and her next project has the potential to be just as incredible.
According to Variety, Lee has been tapped by Disney to write the screenplay for Madeleine L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time" for a future Disney release. "A Wrinkle in Time" follows two siblings and their friend who travel through time and space to find their missing astrophysicist father. The book was one of Lee's favorites growing up, and is many kids' first introduction to the world of science fiction and time travel.
I'm thrilled that "A Wrinkle in Time" is being made into a movie and can't wait to learn more. For now, though, I'll just have to "let it go" and let Lee go and work on the screenplay.
Go work on the screenplay right now, Jennifer Lee, so we can see the movie as soon as possible.
