Eva Green to Reteam with Tim Burton for 'Miss Peregrine's Home'
After teaming up with direct Tim Burton for the lackluster Dark Shadows, the stunning and brilliant Eva Green will reunite with the director of Batman and Beetlejuice for another project. Variety has word that the star of the forthcoming graphic novel sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently in talks to star in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an adaptation of Ranson Riggs' novel of the same name. Green would play the title character, a guardian for a group of orphan children who have special powers but find themselves and the island where they live threatened by creatures out to destroy them.
Here's hoping that Burton can turn out something much more inspired than his recent adaptation fare. Despite the fact that Alice in Wonderland has a huge young fanbase and made tons of money at the box office (and and has a sequel on the way), his style has become tired and his storytelling capabilities have waned considerably. But it would be nice to have the old Tim Burton back with a great film like this. The hope is to begin production in February, which likely means it won't open on July 31st, 2015 as was previously announced. If we're lucky, maybe there's a role for Eva Green in Beetlejuice 2 as well. Cool?
