After 25 years since filming “Edward Scissorhands”, Tim Burton may be back in Tampa Bay, Florida to shoot his next film, “Peregrine: Home for Peculiars”.

“They are like 99 percent confirmed. But chances are extremely good that they’ll be shooting here in the spring. It’ll be shooting primarily in London, but parts do take place in Florida,” news broke by St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film commission head, Tony Armer last Wednesday, December 8.

“It’ll be not necessarily beachy, but an old Florida home type of look. They’ll be shooting in some neighborhoods in Pinellas County, and also in Tampa,” he added.
Armer also said that the film isn’t receiving any funding from Florida (as published at TimeOut). “Because he’s Tim Burton; he can almost do whatever he wants. He has a little more sway, I guess you’d say, than your average filmmaker.”

Although there are no many news about the “Miss Peregrine: Home for Peculiar Children” movie adaptation, Burton is said to be starting filming it with Eva Green and Asa Butterfield next year, 2015.

“Peregrine: Home for Peculiars” will reunite Burton and Green after the two worked together in the film “Dark Shadows” in 2012.
Asa Butterfield has just recently confirmed his talks with Burton on his possible portrayal of the role of Jacob Portman, the 16-year-old boy who discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s orphanage in Wales when he wants to find out the truth behind the death of his grandfather. But when he gets in the place, he also learns that there are still people living in the remains.

“There’s a joke in my family that I’m going to make a career out of playing other people’s younger selves,” jokes 17-year-old actress Ella Purnell. “I played the younger Keira [Knightley], now I’m playing the younger Angelina. I mean, it’s a good track record, right?” The London native is making light of being cast by executive producer and lead actress Angelina Jolie in this season’s brooding Disney blockbuster Maleficent. Though the two have never met, Jolie handpicked the fashion-adoring actress during the film’s reshoot stage. Purnell, who had originally auditioned for the role of Princess Aurora (which eventually went to Elle Fanning), was not expecting the call, finding out about her appointment while recovering from a hospital stay for appendicitis. “I was sitting at home with greasy hair, with like operation stuff, half conscious, coming off the anesthetics,” she says. Soon she was flying harnessed, with layers of bandages covering her fresh scars. It was just another droll moment in a young, adventure-filled career that includes a narrowly missed bear attack in 2013’s WildLike and throwing up on cue for Kick-Ass 2. “I don’t know if you’ve ever projectile vomited on someone’s face, but it’s really satisfying,” she says.

In between directing a school play, working two jobs, and acting, the eldest daughter of four, like her Hollywood counterpart, spends time considering cinema through the lens of social progress. “I want to be a part of a movie that changes people’s conceptual framework and suddenly you see things in a different way,” she says. Perhaps that could be a good talking point when she finally meets her maker, at the Maleficent premiere. “I’ll meet Angelina and be like, ‘Hi. I’m you.’ That’s a good conversation starter.”
