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.
