Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children‘ is now in production; however it seems that the casting for movie adaptation of Ransom Rigg’s novel is still being decided. But then again, we’re just glad it’s already in production. There’s some pretty big names involved in this upcoming movie and their not your usual Tim Burton casting. There’s Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney and of course Samuel L. Jackson, alongside other actors.

Asa Butterfield will be the main character, Jacob; Ella Purnell will play Emma, Samuel L. Jackson will play Barron, and Eva Green will play Miss Peregrine.

New cast Allison Janney will play Dr. Golan, who will be Jacob’s psychiatrist. In the book, Dr. Golan is a man, however they chose to make the movie character a woman, this, I guess, is just one of the surprises that we can expect for the upcoming ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ the movie. Kim Dicken’s role is still unknown at this time.

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ will be directed by gothic genius Tim Burton, and to be honest I can’t imagine anyone else directing this movie.

Synopsis of ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ according to 20th Century Fox:

“From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale. Sixteen-year-old Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.”

This is the second collaboration between actress Eva Green and Director Tim Burton. The first one was in 2012’s adaptation of ‘Dark Shadows’. The book has a very gothic feel to it, so this movie is surely a perfect match for Tim Burton. All Tim Burton fans are really excited about it.

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ is going to hit the big screen on March 4, 2016.
