Michael Peña joins Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time'

Disney has added another A-lister to its already star-studded ensemble cast of A Wrinkle in Time. Michael Peña (Ant-ManThe Martian) joins Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, André Holland, Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard and Will McCormack in the live-action retelling of the classic children's novel by Madeleine L'Engle.

Peña will star as Red and while no description of his character is given, we're assuming he will be The Man with Red Eyes. According to the novel, The Man with Red Eyes is the Prime Coordinator of the planet Camazotz and is under the control of IT. 

A Wrinkle in Time is directed by Ava DuVernay and produced by Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand with a screenplay written by Jennifer Lee. It currently does not have a release date, although prinicple photography just began on November 2, 2016.
