"madeleine lengle" Discussed on Diane Rehm: On My Mind
"The anticipation has been building for months today, A wrinkle in time. Finally hits the big screen. It's been a dream more than five decades in the making poor Catherine a hand. The film's producer Catherine a hand. What aid dream come true pre. It is. It is it. I know you read a wrinkle in time when you were a little girl, How old were you? I was ten years old. And you then sent a letter to Walt Disney that you come posed saying that you will hope tape would make a movie up this book I did. And the I will say in it's an important I really actually didn't may over letter because I was too shy. But when he died, I felt so guilty that I had not mailed the letter. And so I. Oh, my gosh, I've I've lost the opportunity to get this book in front of someone that can make this movie, and I couldn't think of anybody else that made movies for children. And so that's what I made the promise to myself, that when I grew up I would make it. Why do you think you love this book so much? What is it about it? I think that our many, many reasons I think I really identified with Meg, But there were also very specific things. Meg lived in a big White House, and I lived in a big White House. Calvin was a tall gangly headed boy and I had a crash and fifth grade and tall. And I think another piece was that she had a very special relationship with her baby brother and who is different. And I had a baby brother, seven years younger, just like Meghan Charles while us. And he had learning disabilities. And so I think I really had an affinity for that relationship because I loved my baby brother. And and I think for the for all of his life, We would always talk about He's the treasure, the love of my life, just as Meg would talk about her baby brother in those terms. Interesting. So when you read the book, you really identified not only with the central character Meg, but with the other characters, observers will hounded. You finally come to meet the author Madeleine thing goal. It was absolutely. A miracle may I was working for the writer-producer Norman Lear, and and I read material for him deciding, You know, helping him decide what his next project is going to be. And I obviously had always wanted to make wrinkle into a movie. So I had the courage found the courage to have him read it. And he said to me, uh, that he loved it, but he didn't think it was something for him to write or direct. And in that moment I said, What can I go after the rights anyway? And he said, Well, if you can get Alan Horn who is than the president, his company to agree. Yes. So I Senate Allen, and that was 37 years ago who he is now chairman of Walt Disney Pictures and Allen said, Go for it. And with that, I wrote a letter to Madeleine Lengle and she called me collect always wrong. He called a little I And I was so I was speechless actually when she Carl I didn't know what to say, but it I got a found the words to could I come to New York to meet with her white year? Would this was 1979 after her book had really One Acholi. Oh, Allott ended up and he had remember There was no Internet. I had no idea. Other people loved the book. I only knew I did. And so when I actually had lunch with her, I found out that hundreds of people had wanted the rights to the book over the years. And She always said, no. But there was something that happened in that lunch. I don't really I don't know how to find the words, but we connected and six months later Norman's company had the right with me as the champion. Oh, hell wonderful. And we should say that book was turned down by how many hundreds or or the publishers Yanni's sixty housing twenty six. And then won the Newbury metal in nineteen 1963 So win on 2s sale. I think in two thousand twelve some ten million copies. So how many more sense then we have no Well, and now I that you have to remember, you know the book what became beloved since ninety sixty three And when children read books like that, they check them out of the library. So there are no numbers to know how many kids actually read that book. It was only with the phenomenon of Harry Potter when kids bought books Right when they're bet they bought their favorite book before that mostly their read it and checked it out the library. So there are generations of fans of our England time who read it when they checked it out. Elaborate who knows helped me understand the wrinkle. The rink uh It's test-firing taking a wrinkle in time travelling in the fifth dimension. You know, one of the things that really inspired Mallon when she wrote the book was Einstein and theory relativity in particle physics. And so actually the three ladies Mrs which Mrs was it Mrs who Hernan energy and matter and they can travel. And really what was very interesting recently as I I don't know a couple of years ago a year ago. They actually discovered the shadow of time which could lead to her idea of a wrinkle in time being a reality. So and and they're doing lots of research about frequencies and how you know we might be able to travel through dimensions if we can really get into different frequencies put to you all. That is in the book. Yes. And you as a 10-year-old girl, gut. Into it off loved it, worry. You turned off by the. No, you're. I did. I mean, you know think about this. This is way before Wars, waiting for any of the movies we have today. And I had no I had no sense of the universe. And if I did, it was pocket-sized compared to would Madeleine created. And it was just an exciting thought to believe that a a planet like Uriel existed. And I think the other thing that there was a universe that there was a cigar lacked battle between darken light and good and evil, and that it was very, very important to become the light to fight back the darkness because they will always exist. And in order to fight back, You have to become the light. And I just resonated with that. I just totally believed. It was so real to me. And then I just had a more deeper view of it. Once I met my. Madeleine and one President, I'm with her Now. What about the stories you you've got some huge names. How did that come about? Well, isn't that exciting? Iro over wherever eyes weather's finale Kaelin Chris Pine. I mean, we are very, very lucky was a real mix of things of how that all fell into place. I think many killing was someone that Abe absolutely wanted to work with and they're friends, and I think it was a phone call And Mindy was en. Then Oprah is a very good friend of Viva's and they were talking you're talking about Dubrave or DNA the director yet. And and they were talking in over, so we'll let me read it because they've ever told her what her next project was. And she said, You know what? I would like to play Mrs, which and I get a phone call and someone and Jim, What are the other producers as well? What do you think about a Oprah playing Mrs wedge? And I was like, Oh my God. And then with Res, you know all three of them, right Konyk. And with Res One of the things that was so sweet about res Is that she loved her inkling time It's a child. She was a huge fan of all the books in this series. And so I think you know when Abe Duve Rene called and asked if she would be interested not only was Reese interested in working with Eva, but to to play Mrs. What's it in? Wrinkle in time her forever. Favorite books of all time It was. It was a great, great moment. I think for everybody Cancern talk at them the diversity of the cast. I mean, there's no colour suggested in the book, But here you come up with a quite differs. Can we do? And I'm so proud of it. Evo is the one that suggested it. It was her very first instinct about how she would approach the movie. But let me tell you why it's so one. Under fall that the cast is diverse. When I first started this journey working with Madeleine Lango she told me that her most favorite line in the book was like an equal or not the same thing at all. That that is what the entire book was about. People will say all sorts of things, but for her, you know, I think that that meant a great deal. And so when ever made the suggestion I thought that that was the embodiment of that sentiment. You know, We are equal not in what we look like, cannot in our beliefs, not an all of those other things because sometimes we say, we think that we need equality comes when you and I agree on everything. Are we look, I go, we have the same. That's what equality is, but it's not you know, equality is something so much deeper and dump about respect and acceptance and tolerance of differences in So when she said that I just. Oh, my gosh, She's channeling. What was so important to Madl mango can threaten nailed there. The film is done. Yeah. You seen it. I'm sure many don't yet. What do you think? And these beautiful. I think there are some things that are a little different than the book. And I just hope that those that love the book don't focus on the trees, But see the forest. I think the forces beautiful. I think we are always talking how we need stories to help our young people see the good in the universe And that illuminate the human spirit. And I believe that this movie does that. And I think that Eva gave everything she could to it. I know Jennifer leader, the screenwriter Disney certainly did Jim Whitaker and I worked round the clock Many, many Late Nights trying to do well by the book and make a beautiful movie. Um, and so I I just hope that, you know. At the end of the day, the audience agrees particularly young people. Well, we're gonna find out because them move the opens two day Catherine hand Congratula. Thank you so much. Diane's Whoah happy to have the higher. Thank you so much. Okay. Airline It's
