As Tim Burton continues to consider helming MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, it seems an encouraging writer has come aboard.
Deadline reports that Jane Goldman of KICK-ASS, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and the upcoming THE WOMAN IN BLACK fame, is close to confirmed to adapt the Ransom Riggs novel for screen. While WOMAN IN BLACK is yet to-be-seen, most signs point to solid gothic terror, which from its synopsis and vintage photographs within, MISS PEREGRINE has written all over it.
The novel tells of "a horrific family tragedy that sets sixteen-year-old Jacob 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 were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive."
