Tim Burton to direct Peculiar Children?

Posted by Glennis Byron on November 16, 2011 in News tagged with , ,

We reported last June that Twentieth-Century Fox had purchased the film rights to Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and it now appears that Tim Burton is in talks to direct the film.

The book is about a sixteen-year-old boy named Jacob who travels to a mysterious island and finds the school. His late grandfather used to tell him stories about the strange children who used to be housed there, who had paranormal abilities and may, somehow,  still be alive.

It really does sound like a Burton film, doesn’t it. Hoping to see trailers come out soon for Burton’s recent projects, Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie.
