Tim Burton Enters Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Movie News

Calling it now–Helena Bonham Carter is going to star in this movie along with Johnny Depp. And it shouldn’t be too hard for Bonham Carter to land the role since she’s married to Tim Burton in the first place. Deadline is reporting that Tim Burton is in early talks to come aboard “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children”, the Ransom Riggs novel that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment acquired last spring. Burton is in talks to develop the book as a potential directing project, and he would be involved in setting a writer to adapt the tale.

Here’s the book’s description via Amazon:

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

Burton currently has lots on his plate. Most recently wrapping his work on “Dark Shadows” for Warner Bros with Johnny Depp, and directed the feature-length version of his short film “Frankenweenie” by Disney. Burton also produced the Timur Bekmambetov-directed “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” for Fox.
