'Little House on the Prairie' Movie Settles at Paramount

Paramount Pictures has staked its claim to the "Little House on the Prairie" movie.

Previously in development at Sony Pictures, the planned adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s bestselling children's books was placed into turnaround last year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Martha Marcy May Marlene" filmmaker Sean Durkin remains attached to direct from a script by Abi Morgan ("The Hour," "The Iron Lady").

Based on Wilder's childhood memories of life in the late 19th century, the "Little House" novels were famously adapted for television in a series that aired from 1974 to 1983. The long-running drama, which starred Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert, deviated a great deal from the source material, but a 2005 ABC miniseries followed the books more closely.
