"Peregrine's Home for Peculiars" Gets July 2015 Release Date
We haven't heard a lot about the feature film adaption of Ransom Riggs' debut young adult novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, in quite a while. But finally, we have some news. The Hollywood Reporter states that Fox has already given the movie a release date: July 31st, 2015.
Fox has also given the film a slightly more digestible title: Peregrine's Home for Peculiars. Tim Burton is still attached to direct the film, and is supposed to do so after having completed Big Eyes (which will begin shooting in Vancouver this July). Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Stardust, X-Men: First Class) has written the most recent version of the screenplay.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that, "the story follows a teenage boy who is transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them."
