Jeff Stockwell will adapt author Madeleine L’Engle’s classic time-travel novel, “A Wrinkle in Time,” for Cary Granat and his new Bedrock Studios. The 1962 Newbery Medal-winning sci-fi novel is described as follows:
Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. She claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a “tesseract,” which, if you didn’t know, is a wrinkle in time.
Meg’s father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?
Stockwell’s credits include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys and Terabithia. He also has adaptations of Kiki’s Delivery Service and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane in the works and wrote the original screenplay Our Wild Life to be directed by Walter Salles.
