Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children adds Allison Janney

Tim Burton's latest flight of fancy, MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN has just added multiple Emmy-winning actress Allison Janney ("The West Wing"), according to Variety. Janney joins a cast that includes Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell and Samuel L. Jackson.

Based on the book by Ransom Riggs, MISS PEREGRINE'S goes like this:

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob (Butterfield) journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here — one of whom was his own grandfather — were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow — impossible though it seems — they may still be alive.

Janney plays the psychiatrist to Butterfield’s character. Green plays the title character, who acts as a guardian of the "peculiar children."

Production on the film is currently underway; it has a March 6, 2016 release date set.
