Paramount Pictures has picked up the in development feature film adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic book series “Little House on the Prairie”.
The nine-book series began in 1932 and followed the author’s recollections of growing up with her family in a log cabin in 1871. The property is best known for its long-running TV series adaptation starring Michael Landon.
Originally setup at Sony Pictures, David Gordon Green (“Joe,” “Prince Avalance”) was slated to direct but was replaced just over a year ago by Sean Durkin (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”). Then the film was put in turnaround by the studio where it languished until Paramount scooped it up recently.
Durkin is still in place to direct from a script by Abi Morgan (“Shame”). Scott Rudin (“Steve Jobs”) will produce.
