AVA DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” may have disappointed at the box office, but she’s already booked another big-budget project.
Warner Bros. said that DuVernay will direct “The New Gods,” a DC Comics property created by the famed comic book artist Jack Kirby.
It’s an elaborate science fiction work, part of Kirby’s “Fourth World Saga,” about two warring alien planets.
It debuted in 1971. DuVernay became the first African-American woman to direct a live-action movie with a budget of $100 million or more with “A Wrinkle in Time.”
She joins “Wonder Woman’s” Patty Jenkins, the highest-paid female director in history, in the DC universe. (AP & JGA)
