Sons of Anarchy star Kim Dickens cast in Tim Burton directed film
Kim Dickens, whose previously acting credits include House of Cards, Sons of Anarchy, and The Walking Dead spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, was recently announced as being cast in Tim Burton‘s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiars.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiars will star Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game) as the main protagonist, and will also star Eva Green (Penny Dreadful), Allison Janney (The DUFF), and Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), and will be directed by Tim Burton.
No word on which character Dickens will play, but there are very few adult female roles in the movie, however, it can’t be said that they won’t change what male characters there were in the book to female characters, as was the case with Allison Janney’s character, Dr. Golan.
Here’s the storyline:
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale. Sixteen-year-old Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.
The movie is based off the book of a similar name, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and was written by Ransom Riggs. The sequel, Hollow City, was released in 2014, and the third book, Library of Souls, will be released in the fall of 2015.
It seems that IMDb has titled the movie the same as the book, adding the word “Children” instead of pluralizing “Peculiar.” However it is titled, it will be something to see this book filled with authentic and eerie photos put on screen.
Production has already started with the film set to be released March 4, 2016.
