MISS PEREGRINE Gains Script Writer

The surprise YA hit Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs (Quirk Books, Jun, 2011) just took one step closer to the big screen. Deadline reports that X-Men screenwriter Jane Goldman will adapt the novel. Tim Burton is still in talks to direct.

Riggs used his personal collection of spooky Victorian photos as an inspiration for the novel. An as-yet-untitled sequel is scheduled for Spring 2013.

In April, HarperCollins will publish selections from Riggs’s collection of antique found photographs, annotated with evocative comments by their original owners.
