Eva Green to join Tim Burton film?

Eva Green is negotiating a deal to star in Tim Burton's next film

Eva Green is eyeing a role in Tim Burton's new film Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.

The actress who previously worked with director Tim on Dark Shadows is in negotiations to play the starring role of Miss Peregrine, according to Variety.

It is based on the Ransom Riggs novel about a teenager transported to an island where he has to protect a group of orphans with special powers, from creatures who are out to destroy them. Miss Peregrine acts as their guardian.

Eva was last seen on the big screen in 300: Rise Of An Empire and appears in the upcoming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, as well as starring in the TV series Penny Dreadful, which is heading into its second season.

Tim has recently completed biopic Big Eyes, which stars Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane and Christoph Waltz as her husband, with whom she had legal battles over the credit for her works.
