Little House on the Prairie coming to big screen

News has just broken that a feature film adaptation of the 1970’s television pioneer drama Little House on the Prairie, which starred Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert, is in the works. Sony Pictures is reportedly in pre-production of the project, which has been penned by The Iron Lady screenwriter Abi Morgan. Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green is in talks to direct. The feature film would be more closely based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s autobiographical novels than the television series, which touched upon a much more diverse range of topics like alcoholism, drug use, racism and even rape.The Little House on the Prairie television show ran for nearly ten years and came to an end with the TV movie Little House on the Prairie: A Look Back to Yesterday. ~Brandon Bastaldo

    That sounds great! It was my favourite show when I was a kid.

    Should be pretty funny if they can get Jonah Hill and the guy from Napoleon Dynamite to sign on.

    I can hardly wait! This was my favorite show growing up! It’s like history repeating itself watching my daughter enjoy all the same episodes that I did:)

    Laura Ingall Wilder’s story is one that deserves more exposure. Her and her husbands lives are worth telling. True pioneers that never gave up.

    Is Seth Rogen going to be in it?
