"Little House on the Prairie" Movie Hires Director

"Little House on the Prairie" Movie Hires DirectorSubmit Comment
Sean Durkin, the director of Elizabeth Olsen's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," is in negotiations with Sony Pictures to direct a big screen adaptation of the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series.

The show, which aired on NBC from 1974 to 1983 and starred Michael Landon, focused on a pioneer family living in the 1880s in the American Midwest. It was known for is wholesome values and was loosely based on a series of children's books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, who based it on her childhood.

The project was originally set up for David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who ended up dropping out. Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame) wrote the script.

Oh man, can't wait for the Michael Landon ghost cameo.

I can see this doing well. Not. No comic book characters, no vampires, zombies or explosives, no blatant, jutting visual effects...just a lot of dirty people, ugly clothing and dry mid-Western sets. Really can't see who the f*ck would pay to see such a thing. Better aim for Oscar-bait territory, go heavy on the plot and characters, else it'll make ten bucks opening night.

I liked the books when I was younger yet found the show dull. But I'm looking forward to this. I love the era and the director is pretty decent with MMMM and the underrated mini-series Southcliffe.

I count that in two years they will scrap the movie "The Waltons" after they watch this movie sink straight to bottom.

Who the hell will they market this to? Will parents punish their children by taking them to see it because they watched it as kids? I watched it as a kid, and even then I didn't know why the hell I was watching it.

Is this for the Kirk Cameron crowd of monkeys whom think they are not monkeys, unless Clove Barker is flipping it....
