Asa Butterfield May Star In Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’
  |  @   |  

Director Tim Burton has found the actor he wants to play the character Jacob Portman in his upcoming adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. No official offer has been made yet but reports are that Burton wants Asa Butterfield to take on the role.

In the book, Jacob Portman is a 16-year-old boy who seeks to find the truth about his grandfather’s past after he’s murdered, and finds himself at a home where children with special abilities live and are watched over by their guardian Miss Peregrine (who will be played by Eva Green in the movie). While there he learns of monsters known as the “hollows,” which only he can see, leaving him to protect the peculiar children.

Butterfield already has a collection of book adaptations he’s starred in, including The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hugo, and Ender’s Game. He’s also starred in The Wolfman, Nanny McPhee Returns, and the recent X+Y.

The novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was written by Ransom Riggs.
