Book-to-Film: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

TheWrap has revealed that Asa Butterfield of Hugo and Ender’s Game is being eyed for the lead opposite Eva Green in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The high-profile movie is a Tim Burton adaptation of the novel by Ransom Riggs. Butterfield would play 16-year-old Jacob Portman, who seeks the truth about his grandfather’s past after he’s murdered by a “hollow,” a vicious creature (which understandably, Portman had thought to exist only in fantasy). He meets a girl named Emma, who can control fire, and she introduces him to Miss Peregrine and the other peculiar children through a time loop.

The movie is slated to hit theaters on March 4, 2016, and is being financed and distributed by 20th Century Fox. Production is expected to begin in February of 2015.
