The Secret Garden is a drama, family, and fantasy film. The stars include Colin Firth, Julie Walters, and Dixie Egerickx. It is based on the classic novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Marc Munden is the director of the movie. Adapted for the screen by Jack Thorne. David Heyman and Rosie Alison are producing and Jane Robertson is co-producing. StudioCanal’s Ron Halpern, Didier Lupfer, and Dan MacRae are executive producers.
The film is set in England during a new time period in 1947. It follows a young orphan who is sent to her uncle’s. She discovers a magical garden on the grounds of his estate.
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s classic “ The Secret Garden ” has been adapted into several films, television series, and a Broadway musical.
STATEMENT FROM STXFilms CHAIRMAN ADAM FOGELSON
The original ‘Secret Garden’ novel continues to be beloved by both children and adults around the world. We’re thrilled to partner with Studiocanal and Heyday, who together have worked on some of the most popular and well-received family films of the last decade, and look forward to bringing a fresh take on this fantastical story to life for audiences around North America.
Based on my research, a lot of people watched the 1993 version of The Secret Garden and really enjoyed it. They don’t really see the need for a remake. However, with new technology, it will be interesting to see what they can do. Plus, a new generation can now enjoy the story as well. The new film will more than likely bring the story back to life. Looking forward to seeing Dixie Egerickx, Colin Firth, Julie Walters in The Secret Garden. A novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
