Lots of things have been happening lately with regard to Tim Burton’s adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which is said to be coming together quickly for Fox and Chernin Entertainment.

Samuel L. Jackson is currently in negotiations for the film that has, per Deadline, already landed Eva Green as the title character plus Hugo’s Asa Butterfield. If signed, Jackson will play Barron, a key role that could be good or bad – no one’s talking at his point.

Jane Goldman wrote the script for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which is slated for release on March 4, 2016.

Book Synopsis:
Jacob is a 16-year-old whose childhood was filled with stories his grandfather told him about an orphanage for unusual children. Among the residents: a girl who could hold fire in her hands, another whose feet never touched the ground, and twins who communicated without speaking. When his beloved grandfather dies unexpectedly but leaves a message behind for his grandson, the teen heads off to his grandfather’s home on an isolated island off Wales.

There he discovers the abandoned remains of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It is in great disrepair, and as Jacob explores its bedrooms and hallways, he can see the children were more than peculiar; they might have been there because they were dangerous. And he can’t shake the feeling they are still lurking around.
