We thought that after all the hype following Ella’s new role in Tim Burtons new film project Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – we would share a review of the book by the Guardian. It may contain some semi-spolers so don’t read on if you want the filmm to be a total surprise! We are really excited for Ella, and bought the book ourselves today …

‘The last 70 or so pages pretty much consisted of no breathing and jumping out of your skin when your cat leaps unexpectedly onto your lap’

This book wrenched me out of my chaotic, stressy, unorganised life and into a whole new one; the life of Jacob as he journeys to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. His entire family life is shrouded by a feeling of mystery and almost spookiness. Yes, I was kept up quite late at night, having a heart attack every time the bed creaked, or even worse, when the Divergent poster fell down on my head. You don’t recover from something like that.

The imaginative Tim Burton has chosen Ella Purnell to star in his forthcoming film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. You can already figure from the title that many more fresh actors will star in the cinematic production, which makes the movie more challenging to direct and more tempting to watch, mainly for Tim Burton addicts.

Another youngish actor to appear next to Ella Purnell on the on-building list for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is Asa Butterfield, already famous for working with director Martin Scorsese for the movie Hugo in 2011. Little Asa is considered for the part of Jacob Portman, central figure in the movie: ‘’Butterfield had been reported to be the favorite for the male lead. Sources now say he and Purnell have offers and negotiations are underway’’.

The upcoming motion picture is based on the debut novel by American author Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The novel was published in June 2011 and reached the first position on the Children’s Chapter Books list in 2012, becoming a New York Times bestseller.

The plot revolves around the life of 16 year old Jacob Portman 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, ‘’a strikingly pretty girl’’, with whom he time travels into the 1940’s to meet the orphanage director, Miss Peregrine.

If Ella Purnell and Asa Butterfield are only in the negotiation process, Eva Green, Frank Miller’s Dame to Kill For is already reported as a definite part of the cast by Variety.com.

According to the source, production is likely to begin in 2015.
