Jennnifer LeerFrozen co-director Jennifer Lee is set to adapt A Wrinkle in Time, the 1962 novel by Madeleine L’Engle. It’s a big step forward for the Disney project, which has been in development since 2010. Hit the jump for more details.

Variety reports that A Wrinkle in Time was one of Lee’s favorite books as a child, and that she impressed Disney execs with her creative, female-driven take on the science fantasy tale. Meanwhile, she will stay on as part of Walt Disney Animation’s story trust, and maintain an active role in developing projects.

In addition to Frozen, which she co-directed and co-wrote, Lee’s credits include the screenplay for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. She takes over A Wrinkle in Time from Jeff Stockwell (Bridge to Terabithia), who wrote the first draft.

James Whitaker and Catherine Hand are producing. No director has been announced as of yet. A Wrinkle in Time was previously adapted into a TV movie in 2003, which Hand also produced. However, the new version will be the first time the tale has been adapted as a theatrical feature.
