As to Miss Peregrine, the movie, a screenwriter was assigned in December of 2011. Tim Burton was rumored to be interested in directing it, but there’s been no recent news and Burton is now at work on a biopic about painter Margaret Keane, whose kitschy portraits of kids with enormous eyes were popular in the ’60′s. It’s being called, of course, Big Eyes.
Below is the book trailer for Miss Peregrine.
