Jacob:
Emma:
Miss Peregrine:
Abraham:

Proof of movie: http://www.reelz.com/movie/291138/mis...
Or: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1935859/


Silvermoon Jacob: Jamie Campbell Bower or Josh Hutcherson
Emma: Emma Watson or Saoirse Ronan
Miss Peregrine: Meryl Streep or Maggie Smith
Abraham: (young)Jamie Campbell Bower (old)Christopher Plummer
Olive: Emma Ryane Lyle or if you want to make the character older Abigail Breslin or Chloe Moretz
Millard: Dominic Scott Kay
Enoch: Ryan Ochoa
Claire: Mia Talerico
Jacob's Father: Colin Firth
Jacob's Mother: idk, some one annoying lol


Amanda idk but i hope they don't mess this movie up because the book was amazing!!!!!! tim burton is directing so its gonna be good. . .


Nasra Awesome there's gonna be a movie? I hope they do a good job and it doesn't turn out to be another version of Eragon or Percy Jackson


Silvermoon I didn't read Eragon but i did see that movie and it totally turned me off from ever wanting to read the book. Was I wrong to make that assumption? Should I give the book a shot?


Nasra Yes you were completely wrong to make that assumption, the movie is a joke. The book is a million times better, they ruined the entire plot as well as the details in the movie. Percy Jackson all over again.


Celeste Biersack Book trailer, not movie!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1935859/ haha proved you wrong! Will be SCARY though!


Robyn Amanda - Where did you see that Tim Burton will do it? That was obviously Danny Elfman doing the music in the video, but I was wondering if you knew for sure that it was him? That would be fantastic!

Thea im NOT SURE.. BUT OMG IT WILL BE A MOVIE!!!!!??!?!?


Kathleen I just read the book earlier this week and Loved it. I hope they dont destroy the movie. I agree Eragon the movie is not the same as the book. The book was so much better, which is usually the case.


Bexter I won't choose any actors for this movie because I'm hoping they choose all unknown artists. When they choose someone already famous, it's sometimes hard to look past his or her fame and get into the story itself. This story deserves the audience's full attention!


Jessica yeah! i can't wait to see it! I LOVE THE PECULIAR CHILDREN!

Thea IKR, ITS SO GOOD.. BUT KINDA CREEPY!


Lauren Kennedy Jacob: Josh Hutcherson
Emma: Saoirse Ronan
Miss Peregrine: Emma Thompson
Jacob's Father: Colin Firth

Not really sure about the other characters... But I know for sure that if there is a movie Emma Thompson HAS to play Miss Peregrine no matter what. When reading it she reminded me sooo much of Nanny McPhee and Emma Thompson played her in the movie.


Deborah Lawson CAN NOT WAIT! WATCHED THE TRAILER AND LOVED IT. when is the release date? i think that johnny depp should play the granfather, ik he's young but he can play that kinda part perfectly, as for the others i don't think it matters as long as they stick to the book.

yes it will


message 20: by Bev (new) - rated it 5 stars

Bev The trailer is the 'book trailer' done by the author of the book. He had done other ' book trailers' for other books.


Amanda im so excited for this book to become a movie! does anybody know who is directing it or anything?


Ivana I really hope they use authentic actors. One thing that irritated me throughout the book was the children using Americanisms. I don't usually support screenwriter's changes but it would be nice if we could have less of the American-thinks-it-sounds-like-a-british-person-because-he's-dropped-the-odd-H-but-still-uses-words-we-don't. I loved the book but I honestly expected one of the British children to say "faucet".


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Jacob's mother: Elizabeth Banks even tho shes not annoying!

Samantha I haven't got that far into the book, but Ian Nelson would make a good Jacob.

Naomi Bucsa this book was the best book i have ever read in my entire life !! someone please tell when the movie will be coming out cause im going crazy !!! oh and is there part 2 of the book cause if there is i gotta read it :)

I hope so, bc Tim Burton directed Dark Shadows, and it disappointed me. The potential for quirky humor was there and he was not able to work with the cast to bring it out.


*~Emo: {Evanna} :Goth~* Eeryone thinks JoshHutcherson should be Jacob.


Erica How exciting!


BookWrm88 I heard this too! The book is creepy and would definitely make a great movie.


Michelle I agree that the actors should be English except of course for Jacob. Jacob is American. Born and raised in Florida. So while I think Freddie Highmore would be amazing, he's not American. I'm not sure who could play him. Josh Hutcherson wouldn't be bad but I think someone else would be better.
