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.
