Chris Pine, Star Trek's current Captain Kirk, has locked in his next project. The actor is set to join Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Storm Reid in a big-screen adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. Ava DuVernay will direct the sci-fi drama based on the popular children's book of the same name by Madeleine L'Engle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reid will star as Meg Murry, a young girl traumatized by the disappearance of her scientist father (Pine) years earlier. She finds herself on an interplanetary journey with a schoolmate and her younger brother to find her father. They are aided by a trio of supernatural beings, Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Winfrey). Mbatha-Raw will play Pine's wife.

Pine will next be seen as Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman, opening on June 2, 2017.
