Update: THR reports that Lupita Nyong’o is in talks to superstar in Intelligent Life with DuVernay circling the director’s lounge chair, adding that the film’utes schedule does not participate with A Wrinkle in Time, which means she could primary both if she so chooses. Authentic story continues underneath…
We’ve been frantically waiting for Ava DuVernay to select the girl next feature film project, and although the lady passed on Marvel’s Black Panther, this Selma director has remained incredibly busy executive providing, writing and pointing the TV series Queen Sugar for Oprah Winfrey’s network — not to mention acquiring videos for her ARRAY circulation banner. It looks that DuVerna may be close to choosing her next attribute directing project, seeing that she’s reportedly currently being courted for not one, but two upcoming sci-fi tasks.
Thanks to Selma, DuVernay has become a highly-coveted director, though she’s been recently (wisely) taking the woman time selecting a follow-up undertaking. According to Deadline, DuVernay is wanted for two forthcoming projects: Disney’s A Anti-wrinkle in Time, based on a screenplay by Frozen co-writer and co-director Jennifer Lee; and Intelligent Life, based on a script by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and his creative partner Derek Connolly (otherwise you forget that Trevorrow was plucked for that Jurassic job based on the durability of their sci-fi indie, Safety Not necessarily Guaranteed).
A Wrinkle in Time is founded on the 1963 Madeleine L’Engle novel and also centers on a little woman whose scientist pops goes missing after working with a secret government task involving a tesseract, which would enable fifth-dimensional time traveling. Intelligent Life is set up at Steven Spielberg’ohydrates Amblin and was initially intended as Trevorrow and Connolly’s follow-up to Safety Not Guaranteed. Based mostly somewhat on The Ambassador, the tale follows a special Not agent assigned to characterize mankind as the ambassador of Earth, should we at any time make contact with alien living. The representative comes for a mysterious woman, whose secret it is possible to probably already think.
It’s unclear if DuVernay will select often of these gigs, although each of them seem powerful in their own ways. In which she decides to travel next, we’re wanting to follow.
