Deadline is stating that Chris Pine joined the cast of Ava DuVernay‘s and Disney’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic children’s book, A Wrinkle in Time.

Adapted by Oscar-winning Frozen writer and co-director Jennifer Lee, Pine joins Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, and most recently Gugu Mbatha-Raw in the cast.

A Wrinkle In Time involves a young girl whose government scientist father has gone missing after working on a mysterious project called a tesseract, which involves being transported to a fifth dimension with mysterious inhabited planets. She takes part in a search for her father and sees some incredible creatures along the way.

Pine will play Mr. Murray, husband to the Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Dr. Kate Murray — Meg and Charles Wallace’s mother

A Wrinkle In Time

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?

Winfrey will play Mrs. Which, one of three immortal women who appear in A Wrinkle in Time. The others include Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Kaling).

“A Wrinkle in Time” is the first book in L’Engle’s “Time Quartet” series that also includes “A Wind in the Door,” “Many Waters,” and “A Swiftly Tilting Planet.”

Pine was last seen in this year’s “Star Trek Beyond” and the sleeper hit of the summer “Hell or High Water.”
