Reteaming with the director after Dark Shadows, their next project is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Set for a fall release, the first trailer has now arrived.
Scripted by Jane Goldman, adapting a Ransom Riggs-penned novel, the story concerns Jacob, a 16-year-old visting his recently-deceased grandfather’s home in Wales.

Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children opens on September 30th, 2016.
