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.

The Richmond International Film Festival is proud to be screening the first feature film from Frank Hall Green.

“I knew my first feature would be set in the outdoors,” understates Frank Hall Green, whose film, Wildlike, covers an immense amount of ground. Like, actual ground. Intensely beautiful, sweeping, lush yet stark vistas of ground.

Green and his wife took a trip to Denali in 2003, and they could never quite get it out of their heads. After successfully establishing himself in show biz as a producer and writer and short-film director, it didn’t take long for Green to decide exactly what piece of outdoors he wanted his first feature film to inhabit.

“At the same time, I kept coming back to the idea to do something about sexual abuse and misogyny in general. One of the things that struck me several years ago when I started learning more [about sexual abuse]–all the victims really suffer lifetime damage,” Green explains about the jumping off point for Wildlike. “And then as I researched it more, I learned that the frequency of these events is not reported accurately.”

Wildlike‘s protagonist, Mackenzie (played by Ella Purnell) is, for all intense and purposes, unloaded onto an uncle who lives in Alaska. She’s a vulnerable 14-year-old with a newly dead father, her mom’s in some sort of mysterious and vaguely selfish-seeming treatment in Seattle, and she’s basically got no one in her corner.

Disappointingly, her uncle takes advantage of this situation. And in an especially tense scene in a particularly beautiful setting, Mackenzie gets the hell out of Dodge.

“The story of someone running into the outdoors and finding something there. I kind of put all the pieces together right at the same time. This is something she can run from and somewhere she can run to,” says Green.

Ella Purnell was 15 when she began filming. Her tendency to chew on her sleeves while her enormous eyes avoid contact is so perfectly troubled teenage girl that, if you’ve been a teenage girl yourself, you immediately recognize and unearth the discomfort, the anger, and the confusion you felt when you realized that adults sure know how to let someone down.

Green had auditioned a number of Disney and Nickelodeon actresses for the part, and nothing really clicked. They were too polished, and he knew the role required something more raw. He came back to his hotel room after a round of auditions in Los Angeles and caught some of Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, in which Purnell plays Keira Knightley’s character’s younger self. Green had one of those “That’s it! That’s my Mackenzie!” moments that you see in films about filmmaking, and shortly thereafter, the actress was on board.

Samuel L. Jackson is the latest actor related to the Tim Burton-directed movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Variety announced that Jackson is currently in talks for a part in the movie, nothing definite being yet announced. What is certain, nonetheless, is that if he accepts the part, he will act along with actress Eva Green, who is already officially assigned to the main role, that of Miss Peregrine herself.

Apart from collaboration with the Sin City actress Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson would star along with numerous undiscovered or fresh talents, given that the fantasy movie centers on the relationship between Miss Peregrine and her ‘’peculiar children.’’ If he is only in the talk-stage, young actors like Asa Butterfield or Ella Purnell were already confirmed. Little Asa is considered for the part of Jacob Portman, the male lead, whereas Ella Purnell will play Emma.

Tim Burton’s upcoming picture is based on the debut novel by American author Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, published in June 2011. The fantasy novel became an immediate hit and the movie – considering the cast (including Samuel L. Jackson) and Tim Burton’s preference for fantasy and the peculiar – is likely to become one as well. The plot of the book is centered on the life of 16 years old Jacob Portman (Asa Butterfield) who travels to Wales to investigate on the life of his late grandmother. There, he discovers ‘’the derelict orphanage for peculiar children’’ and encounters Emma (Miss Ella Purnell), ‘’a strikingly pretty girl’’, with whom he time travels into the 1940’s to meet the orphanage director, Miss Peregrine.

Samuel L. Jackson’s joining the team of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children would represent the adding of a class A actor on a list of names of the future, with all the young ones involved. And, of course, the attractive Eva Green, who apart from being ‘’a dame to kill for’’, must now prove that ‘’the peculiar’’ becomes her. Apart from his current role as in Nick Fury in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jackson also stars in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will be released on 4 March 2016.
