After scaring the pants off us throughout Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, Eva Green is heading back into spooky, supernatural territory, with news that she’s in talks to topline Tim Burton’s upcoming Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Adapted from the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children follows a teenage boy who travels to a mysterious island following his grandfather’s unexpected death. There, he finds a group of orphans with extraordinary powers, individuals who his grandfather told him stories of but whom the boy never believed to be real. After meeting the orphans’ enigmatic headmaster (Green), he works to protect his new acquaintances from creatures out to destroy them.
As a fan of the novel, I’m excited to hear that Green is coming aboard. She’s a terrific character actress, and her ability to unsettle and beguile »

One of Eva Green's most memorable outfits is causing controversy…again! The actress is getting heat for the sexy look she pulls off in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. ABC believes the sheer white robe worn by the actress in movie trailers and teaser posters makes her "appear to be naked" in two quick scenes. As a result, the network has rejected the trailer from airing on its stations. Their decision comes after the Motion Picture Association of America decried a similar poster featuring Green's sexy look. The movie's marketing team tried to stick to its guns, but ultimately made Green's robe somewhat more modest in an edited version. According to ABC, »

Filmmaker Tim Burton is very much a fan of working with the same actors on more than a single project – (in)famously so where it concerns Johnny Depp – and he looks to keep that practice alive in the future, including with his upcoming film adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ popular novel, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Variety is reporting that Eva Green has entered talks to play the Miss Peregrine character, who in Riggs’ book is (or, rather, was) the caretaker of an orphanage for children who possess strange and mysterious abilities – in other words, she’s the Professor X to the eponymous Home for Peculiar Children. The protagonist of ...

After teaming up with direct Tim Burton for the lackluster Dark Shadows, the stunning and brilliant Eva Green will reunite with the director of Batman and Beetlejuice for another project. Variety has word that the star of the forthcoming graphic novel sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently in talks to star in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an adaptation of Ranson Riggs' novel of the same name. Green would play the title character, a guardian for a group of orphan children who have special powers but find themselves and the island where they live threatened by creatures out to destroy them.

Sin City, it seems, is a town full of antiheroes doing anti-heroic things and scantily clad women who are not operating at the highest level of morality, either.
In a new red-band trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released at Comic-Con, we can see a bit more of co-directors Richard Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s plans for the sequel to the 2005 original—Joseph Gordon-Levitt opines on woes of gambling and women, Powers Booth plays a dangerous game of cards, Eva Green has nefarious plans for Josh Brolin, and Bruce Willis torments Jessica Alba.
Oh, and Lady Gaga »

Hmm. I must be getting old, because I'm not as excited by the latest trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For as I should be. Maybe it's because the original Sin City raised my hopes so high, and then dashed them upon the rocks. And the sequel promises more of the same from Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. much as we've already seen in the trailers so far. Nonetheless, an abiding curiosity will still drive me to see the movie when it opens on August 22. And makes me want to watch this trailer another few times, particularly those moments with Eva Green, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Powers Boothe, and Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson ... oh, shoot, I'm hooked again....

With his Oscar contender "Big Eyes" starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz coming soon, those who prefer Burton's more whimsical movies shouldn't worry. Early next year he's gearing up an adaptation of Ranson Riggs’ “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” and he's got his eye on a former collaborator for a role. "Dark Shadows" star Eva Green is in negotiations to play the lead character in the story about "a teenager 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." Sounds like a good match of director, actress and material. [Variety] Even though it's apparently years off from actually happening, Neil Druckman revealed at Comic-Con that filmmakers are eyeing "Game Of Thrones" star Maisie Williams to lead the adaptation of his video game "Last Of Us." Sam Raimi is producing this one over at Screen Gems, »
