Walt Disney Pictures' upcoming project, and a fantasy sci-fi movie - A Wrinkle in Time, originally written by Madeleine L'Engle, is all set to get the biggest production incentive of recent times. It is expected to get around $18 Million as tax credit.
The movie - A Wrinkle In Time, which will be directed by Selma fame film-maker Ava DuVernay, is among the 28 movie projects, fortunate enough to get selected under California's Television and Film Tax Credit program. The program had been revised back last in 2015.
"A Wrinkle in Time will bring $85 million in qualified spending to California," said a state official.
A Wrinkle in Time, is assumed to be produced later this year. It is a sci-fi adventure story from the 1963 fantasy novel bearing the same name written by Madeleine L'Engle. The story reveals a time-travel tale of a little girl who sets voyage to find her lost father and the adventures she make.
Oprah Winfrey will star in this movie adaptation of the novel. The script will be managed by Frozen fame writer Jennifer Lee.
"We considered several other locations, but felt that the spectacular landscapes and intimate, real settings found in California perfectly met Ava DuVernay's directorial vision," said producer Whitaker on finalizing the location of the movie.
