Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing under the Chernin Entertainment banner. The screenplay is by Jane Goldman.
The unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale centers on 16-year-old Jacob (portrayed by Asa Butterfield), who follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.
Ransom Riggs’ novel was published in 2011, followed in 2014 by a second book (in a planned trilogy), “Hollow City.”
