This Woman Just Broke Through a Huge Barrier
As Deadline reported earlier this week, Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, directed by Ava DuVernay, has a budget of more than $100 million. Why is that significant? Because, as the Women and Hollywood blog points out, that makes DuVernay the first woman of color to direct a live-action film with a budget that high. And only two other women (Kathryn Bigelow with K-19: The Widowmaker and Patty Jenkins with next year’s Wonder Woman) have ever helmed live-action movies with budgets of more than $100 million.
