Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling in Talks to Join Oprah Winfrey in 'A Wrinkle in Time'.

Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling are in negotiations to appear in Disney’s adaptation of the classic novel "A Wrinkle in Time," TheWrap has learned. The project is being directed by Ava DuVernay.

Witherspoon will portray one of three celestial beings, Mrs. Whatsit, described in the book as a very old and disheveled woman.

Kaling will play Mrs. Who, a well-read immortal woman who often recites quotes.

Oprah Winfrey, who is re-teaming with her “Selma” director, has already been cast in the film to star as Mrs. Which, whose appearance changes.

The script was written by “Frozen” writer and co-director Jennifer Lee, who won an Oscar in 2014 for the Disney Animation film.
