Tim Burton For Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children?
The story centers on an abandoned orphan named Jacob who travels to a mysterious island to find the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home. As he explores he realizes that the children sent there were more than just peculiar and may still be alive. The book was released last summer and combines text with freaky black and white photographs.
The combination of childhood whimsy and gothic creepiness seems right up Burton’s ally. The director is currently finishing up the upcoming Dark Shadows adaptation and will next be working on stop-motion project Frankenweenie – a rejig of one of his first short films.
