Kim Dickens Joins Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Kim Dickens has rounded out the cast of 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of the classic novel “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” which Tim Burton is directing.

Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney and Samuel L. Jackson also star.

The film is based on the Ransom Riggs novel, following a teenager, played by Butterfield, who finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them. Green will play the title character, who acts as a guardian for these orphans.

Chernin Entertainment is producing, with Jane Goldman penning the script.

Production is currently under way, and the pic is set to bow March 4, 2016.

While she has stayed busy on the film front, Dickens broke out from her roles on TV that included HBO’s “Deadwood” and “Treme” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.” She recently landed a starring role on the upcoming “The Walking Dead” companion series.

Dickens was last seen in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” which was also a Fox production. She is repped by Gersh.
