Eva Green, who previously starred in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, is planning to potentially re-team with the director for his upcoming children’s book adaptation, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Variety has the news, reporting that Green is currently in negotiations, presumably for the title role of Miss Peregrine.
The book by Ransom Riggs combines text with black and white photos and was released in 2011. It is officially described as follows:
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived hereone of whom was his own grandfatherwere more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehowimpossible though it seemsthey may still be alive.
Green, who starred earlier this year in 300: Rise of an Empire, can next be seen playing the title role in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. You can check out the just-released extended trailer for that film right here.
Filming on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is slated to begin production in February 2015.
