September 25th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Tim Burton’s latest film, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, is set to start filming in February. And now, Ain’t It Cool reveals that the star of the movie might just be Hugo and Ender’s Game star Asa Butterfield.

Asa has not confirmed that he is in the field yet, but according to the reports he does fit the role rather well.

The book centers around a kid named Jacob Portman, who’s relationship with a firebender named Emma leads him to being part of Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.

The movie is set to debut on March 4, 2016.
