|Eva Green in Penny Dreadful|
So our meeting on Thursday was fantastic, and you guys had lots of great thoughts about the book. And a huge amount of you said you wanted to continue the series and read The Hollow City. Which is awesome! I, myself, We also mentioned that it had been optioned by 20th Century Fox to be brought to film! HUZZAH! So, here are the facts.
- Tim Burton, director of awesome movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and Sweeney Todd, is set to direct the adaptation. Which, if he gets back to what he's good at, should be an awesome choice.
- Eva Green, who is best known for her role in the James Bond film Casino Royale, and more recently Penny Dreadful, is in negotiations to play Miss Peregrine herself.
- Asa Butterfield, star of Ender's Game, is possibly set to play Jacob.
And there you have it! The movie won't be out for quite awhile yet (probably 2016), but at least there are lots of good rumors about casting to read.
