Ransom Riggs is an American writer best known for his children’s books. He decided to travel to Europe to capture the interiors of abandoned and untouched houses for his last novel: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But when he got there and started to explore, he discovered something he wasn’t expecting to see. Some of the houses he had access to, had been empty for decades, and everything inside was untouched. Now Riggs wants to show that these houses aren’t old forgotten wastes of space, but historical icons that capture a precious moment in time.
When an important Hollywood director found out about Ransom’s novel, he was decided to make it into a movie. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will be released as a film in March 2016 and guess who’s directing it? The master of old creepy things himself: Tim Burton.
