HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A film based on the popular Little House On the Prairie television series is reportedly in its beginning stages at Paramount Pictures.

The studio picked up the movie adaption recently in turnaround after Sony Pictures dropped it in 2012 due to budget concerns, Variety reports.

The Hollywood Reporter notes director Sean Durkin, who helmed Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011, is set to direct the project from a script written by Abi Morgan.

Paramount has yet to announce any attached actors to the project, based on the popular television show airing between 1974 and 1983.

Little House On the Prairie, the television series, was loosely based on a series of children's books by author Laura Ingalls Wilder. Actress Melissa Gilbert starred in the original series as the main character, Laura Wilder.
