‘A Wrinkle in Time’ adds Michael Peña, begins production

Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time has added several more actors to its roster, and the movie has officially started filming!

The star-studded Wrinkle in Time cast continues to grow as three more people have joined the movie.

Deadline reported additional cast members on Wednesday, which includes Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as The Happy Medium, André Holland (Selma) as Principal Jenkins, Levi Miller (Pan) as Calvin, and Deric McCabe (Hold On) as Charles Wallace.

Bellamy Young (Scandal), Rowan Blanchard (Girl Meets World) and Will McCormack (Celeste & Jesse Forever) have also been added to the cast, as well as Michael Peña (The Martian, Ant-Man), who will be playing Red. There is no character description for Red at the moment.

DuVernay has been sharing pictures leading up to production, including this one of Storm Reid (Meg Murry) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Dr. Murry):

The director also shared this picture of herself moments before official production began, and her excitement is contagious:

Not only is A Wrinkle in Time collecting an array of incredible cast members, but it’s also proving that diversity in casting is more than just a possibility — it’s a reality. DuVernay’s passion for this project makes me even more excited for what’s to come.
