The first images have been released of Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
which stars Asa Butterfield as Jacob Portman and Ella Purnell as Emma Bloom heading up the young cast, alongside Eva Green in the title role.
Here’s the full lineup of the peculiar children, each endowed with unusual skills or powers. “I was a little worried about working with so many kids again,” Burton told Empire Magazine, “but they were all such professionals on set. You would never believe that it was some of these kids’ first big film.”
Pixie Davies plays little Bronwyn Buntley. Georgia Pemberton from London (represented by BWH) plays Fiona Frauenfeld. Finlay MacMillan (represented by BWH) plays "Dead Raiser" Enoch O'Connor. Milo Parker (represented by BWH) plays Hugh Apiston. Lauren McCrostie (represented by United Agents) plays Olive. Raffiella Chapman (represented by Curtis Brown) is Claire Densmore. Cameron King plays Millard, and Hayden Keeler-Stone is Horace Somusson. Louis Davison (son of Doctor Who actor Peter Davison) plays Victor.
As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy 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.
Based upon the best-selling novel 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' by Ransom Riggs, the screenplay has been written by Jane Goldman. The film also stars Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, with appearances by Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children has its UK release set for October 7th 2016, a week after its US release on September 30th.
