Tim Burton returns to filming set of ‘Edward Scissorhands’ for the movie adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ YA novel ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,’ which is set for release in 2016.

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” movie production is in full swing. While it is without a doubt that movie adaptation of YA novels is the trend nowadays, Tim Burton’s upcoming movie based on Ransom Riggs’ book is one of the most highly anticipated films in 2016. Will there be changes in translating the book to the big screens? Read on to learn more about this scoop.

Ransom Riggs’ “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is one of the best selling novels in 2014. With the current trend in movies gearing towards adaptation of best selling novels, it isn’t quite a surprise seeing how gothic genius Tim Burton decided to pick on this book for his next movie.

Youth Health Mag reported that filming for the movie has already begun in order to meet the film’s scheduled release date in 2016. While the movie is undoubtedly a hit amongst fans and viewers, the movie also seems to share something special with Burton.

The outlet cited that the filming location for “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is the same as the area where Burton’s masterpiece, “Edward Scissorhands” was shot.

“Inside a modest one-story waterfront house, Burton directed a birthday party scene for his last movie… Burton’s set was closed to the media but tell-tale signs of movie production were obvious,” the outlet cited.

Author Ransom Riggs has also previously expressed confidence in the translation of his best-selling novel. Riggs also appreciated the fact that they continuously heed his opinion on the script.

“They’re involving me more than I think most writers get involved.”

Meanwhile, Collider reported that the first logo for the movie has been revealed during the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.

The movie stars “Penny Dreadful” actress Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, and Terence Stamp.

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” premieres on March 4, 2016.
