Jeff Stockwell has signed on to adapt author Madeleine L'Engle's classic time-travel novel A Wrinkle in Time for Cary Granat and his new Bedrock Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
L'Engle's 1962 Newbery Medal-winning sci-fi novel revolves around teenager Meg Murry, her genius brother Charles Wallace and classmate Calvin O'Keefe as they launch an interplanetary mission to rescue the siblings' missing scientist father. They are counseled along the way by the mysterious trio of Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which.
The BBC made a film version of the young-adult novel, and Dimension produced a telefilm for ABC in 2004. Disney carried remake rights from that deal and is developing the new feature iteration with Bedrock, which had negotiated rights to the property from the L'Engle estate.
No production date has been set.
