Oprah Winfrey is in final negotiations to star as Mrs. Which in Disney’s adaptation of the classic novel “A Wrinkle In Time,” TheWrap has learned.
The classic children’s book by Madeleine L’Engle revolves around a young girl in search of her missing scientist father. Mrs. Which is one of the supernatural entities who helps the girl — along with her brother and her friend — traverse the universe.
Winfrey had a smaller role in DuVernay’s 2014 historical drama “Selma,” and also helped the film get made, serving as a producer. The two have also teamed up for DuVernay’s forthcoming OWN drama series “Queen Sugar,” which premieres Sept. 6.
Winfrey is represented by WME.
