Little House on the Prairie Movie in the Works

Sony is in talks to revive the Little House on the Prairie franchise as a feature film, Deadline reports. Shame's Abi Morgan would write the script, and David Gordon Green would direct. Let's put on our thinking bonnets and consider this for a moment: Green's early movies George Washington and All the Real Girls have a powerful sense of landscape, which would be appropriate for some kind of Little House movie. Morgan's sort of a surprising choice, though, given that her previous work includes Shame, The Iron Lady, and the conspiracy period drama The Hour — none of which scream "pioneer spirit." But all kinds of people are moved by the story of the intrepid and industrious Ingalls family! Time to churn some butter, play with a pig bladder, and beg Pa to play us a song on his fiddle.
