This is one I don’t think any of us saw coming. Wrinkle In Time director Ava DuVernay is helming an adaptation of The New Gods for DC. I don’t know what to think, but I’m certainly fucking intrigued.
The future is fucking wild, man. A Twitter used proposed the idea for a buddy movie starring Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o, based on an image of the two together. Now, now that pitch is being turned into a fucking movie, and it’s being directed by directed by Ava DuVernay.
Ava DuVernay is currently the hotness in Hollywood, picking up project after the project. Her latest? A movie about the fashion industry for HBO.
I don’t know A Wrinkle In Time. But I do know Ava DuVernay, so this news has me 50% excited. The other 50% is fiercely agnostic, but curious.
Whelp. Looks like a lot of people turned out to be wrong about Ava DuVernay directing Black Panther.
First it was reported that Marvel was courting Ava DuVernay. Then it was reported she was like, totally directing Black Panther. And now it stands at MaybeDefinitely. Only in the InfoAge, folks.
Why, just today I was shaking my fist at my perception that Marvel was going into some homogenous downward spiral. Well! Perhaps it was too soon. ‘Cause the House of Cinematic Ideas is courting Ava DuVernay to direct a movie.
