Leslie Odom Jr., Cynthia Erivo, Orlando Bloom, and Freida Pinto to Star in John Ridley’s Next Movie

Cynthia Erivo and Leslie Odom Jr.

The stars have literally aligned for Needle in a Timestack, the new movie from Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave screenwriter John Ridley. According to a release from producer Bron Studios, Leslie Odom Jr., Freida Pinto, Cynthia Erivo, and Orlando Bloom will star in Ridley’s story about a husband working to salvage his marriage in an age when time travel is possible. (Imagine the arguments you could win if you had a Time-Turner to prove that he actually did say to meet at the restaurant at 8!) Ridley will write and direct, adapting a short story by Robert Silverberg.
