Sony Pictures May Adapt the Little House on the Prairie Series for a Feature Film

Pack some bonnets, prepare the horses and start setting up your covered wagons! An adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder‘s Little House on the Prairie series may hit the big screen.

Here’s more from from Perez Hilton: “Sony Pictures is considering making the beloved children’s classics into a feature project written by Abi Morgan (Iron Lady), directed by David Gordon Green (The Sitter), which may include plot points from all 9 books in the series. Sounds like some high falutin’ fun to us!”

Wilder was inspired by her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, to write the series. The first installment, Little House in the Big Woods, won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1958. Five titles in the series received a Newbery Honor. The Emmy Award-winning Little House television series ran from 1974 to 1983.
