Jennifer Lee will write a screenplay based on the classic children's book for Disney

Frozen’s co-writer and director Jennifer Lee has signed on to adapt the children’s book classic A Wrinkle in Time to film for Disney, Variety reports.

The 1962 Madeline L’Engle fantasy, about two siblings and a friend traveling throughout time and space to find their missing astrophysicist father, was reportedly one of Lee’s favorite books growing up. There are four books in the series.

Bridge to Terabithia writer Jeff Stockwell had previously been attached to the film in 2010. No director has yet been confirmed.
