Jacqueline Wilson film to shoot later this year

Jacqueline WilsonA feature film adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson’s Four Children and It is in the pipeline, with shooting anticipated to get underway later this year. 

The film is called Four Kids and It, and currently has Michael Caine lined up to star.

The story is based on Wilson’s book – itself a reimagining of E Nesbit’s 1902 classic, Five Children and It – and centres on a blended family getting to know each other during a holiday in Cornwall. Nesbit’s magic, wish-granting creation that lives in the sand, the grumpy Psammead, once again plays a major role in the adventures that ensue. 

If all goes to plan, pre-production may get underway in the summer, so subscribers to Production Intelligence should make sure they’re following the project on our site. Currently listed on PI are details of the production company behind the film as well as the director. 

PI currently has over 360 projects in development; subscribers can follow titles, personnel, companies, locations or status and receive tailored email alerts as more specifics are confirmed.
