Jane Goldman to write the script for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

12.03.2011

That fiery redhead screenwriter, Jane Goldman has picked herself up another project. The KICK ASS scribe will be adapting MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN.

Tim Burton is apparently attached to direct the film but according to Deadline he's only circling presently. The Ransom Riggs novel seems like something right up Burton's alley. Goldman recently wrote the script for THE WOMAN IN BLACK starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Long ass synopsis alert: "Jacob is a 16-year-old whose childhood was filled with stories his grandfather told him about an orphanage for unusual children. Among the residents: a girl who could hold fire in her hands, another whose feet never touched the ground, and twins who communicated without speaking. When his beloved grandfather dies unexpectedly but leaves a message behind for his grandson, the teen heads off to his grandfatherís home on an isolated island off Wales. There he discovers the abandoned remains of Miss Peregrineís Home for Peculiar Children. It is in great disrepair and as Jacob explores its bedrooms and hallways, he can see the children were more than peculiar, they might have been there because they were dangerous. And he canít shake the feeling they are still lurking around."

Goldman is a good screenwriter in my opinion, so I'd be open to this collaboration with Burton.

I'll believe she's a talented screenwriter when she writes an original screenplay instead of adapting the stories of already-proven talented writers.

She's seriously climbing my babe list and the fact that she's a talented screenwriter just makes her hotter.
