Ava DuVernay just got another project on her increasingly full plate: Deadline reports she's officially signed on to direct Disney's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, with a script coming from Frozen's Jennifer Lee. That's in addition to her Hurricane Katrina movie with David Oyelowo that's shooting this year, as well as her rumored team up with Lupita Nyong'o on the sci-fi film Intelligent Life. How does Ava DuVernay do so much? Does she have a magical tesseract that allows her to get anywhere in the universe instantly? She'll never tell.
