‘House’ finds home at U

Universal Pictures is making “Little House on the Prairie” into a feature film. The studio acquired the rights to the nine “Little House” children books by author Laura Ingalls Wilder for a feature to be written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Horton Foote (“To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Tender Mercies”).

“Little House on the Prairie” will be combined with both “On the Banks of Plum Creek” and “By the Shores of Silver Lake” (which is part of the nine-book collection) for the feature.

The books were acquired from “Little House on the Prairie” creator and producer Ed Friendly, who will serve as executive producer on the film.

“What I really loved about the story is the spirit and willfulness of the people that pioneered the West, illustrated by this sweet spunky little girl,” said U’s co-president of production Stacey Snider. “To be working with Horton Foote is truly an honor. He is the one person who will be able to realize the potential of the books.”
