David Gordon Green Moves to LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE

This is an interesting one…

Deadline has received word that Sony Pictures is in the middle of negotiations with ‘Pineapple Express’ director David Gordon Green to direct a big screen adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic children’s book series ‘Little House on the Prairie.’

Semi-autobiographical, the ‘Little House’ series chronicled Wilder’s difficult but fascinating childhood in pioneering 19th century America. The series was most notably adapted into a long-running and massively popular television show with Melissa Gilbert portraying Wilder.

Green will be directing from a script by Abi Morgan (‘Shame,’ ‘The Iron Lady’), with Scott Rudin producing with Trip Friendly.
