Burton in Talks to Direct "Peculiar Children" Adaptation

Tim Burton is in talks to direct a feature-length adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, the Ransom Riggs novel that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment acquired last spring. The talks are only in their early stages, but Burton would be involved with finding a writer to pen the screenplay, reports Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and Jenno Topping will produce.

The story follows a 16-year-old boy named Jacob, who travels to the old Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the orphanage his grandfather told him tall tales about, and where he believes the dangerous, super-powered residents might still be lurking around.
