Peregrine’s Home for Peculiars will come out on July 31st, 2015. This is an adaptation of the children’s novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiars. The last we heard Tim Burton was attached to direct, from a screenplay written by Jane Goldman. Not sure if he's still going to do it or not.
Then Universal Pictures has set a release date for Joe Carnahan's Stretch. That movie comes out on March 21st, 2014, and it stars Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Ed Helms (The Hangover), Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Brooklyn Decker (What to Expect When You're Expecting).
The film is an action-comedy in which all hell breaks out over the streets of L.A. during one twisted night for one desperate driver. When a limo driver (Wilson) discovers that he only has one shift left to pay off a big debt, he goes from worried to hell-with-it-all daring. "When the chauffeur picks up a reclusive billionaire (Pine) with some deviant appetites, he vows to fulfill the guy’s every request, no matter how weird, to score the big tip that could settle his score. But as the night grows stranger and the driver is pushed into some very dangerous encounters, he worries that the freak in his back seat might just be his final fare."
