A major Hollywood milestone has been met, and it’s been a long time coming. After Selma, filmmaker Ava DuVernay became mighty high in demand, fielding interest from a variety of projects as wide-ranging as Marvel’s Black Panther to an original sci-fi tale from the mind of Colin Trevorrow. Eventually she landed on an adaptation of A Wrinkle of Time at Disney as her next project, and as the film’s pre-production continues, we’ve now learned that it marks a genuinely new piece of history: DuVernay has become the first African American woman to ever direct a film with a budget over $100 million.
