Little House on the Prairie is coming back to screens—this time as a movie, not a TV show.
The Laura Ingalls Wilder series will get a new adaptation by Abi Morgan, the screenwriter behind Suffragette and The Iron Lady, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film, which was previously in development at Sony, has now been picked up by Paramount and will be directed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene). No one is attached to star yet.
The books saw a successful TV adaptation in the ’70s and ’80s starring Melissa Gilbert and Michael Landon. Wilder’s annotated autobiography Pioneer Girl was published posthumously in 2014 and became a bestseller; a new volume, The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, will come out on March 8.
