New Secret Garden Movie in the Works

According to Deadline, there’s a new movie adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic children’s novel The Secret Garden. It’s got some kidlit movie cred – David Heyman and StudioCanal are producing, and they did the Harry Potter movies and Paddington. Jack Thorne – who is also currently adapting His Dark Materials – is set to write; his recent credits are pretty varied and include Nick Hornby adaptation A Long Way Down as well as crime show The Last Panthers, so . . . I’m curious to see what he does with this. I’ve always been more of a Little Princess girl, as far as Burnett goes, but I’m definitely interested to see how this turns out.
