Sony, David Gordon Green In Talks To Direct 'Little House on the Prairie' Movie

Remember Little House on the Prairie? The late '70s-early '80s family drama that starred Melissa Gilbert, Lindsay Greenbush and the late Michael Landon (pictured, right) may be coming back to life.

Sony Pictures is in negotiations to turn the long-running television show into a feature film that David Gordon Green would direct.

Green's resume doesn't instill much confidence that this project will be very successful. His last three films include duds The Sitter, Your Highness and Pineapple Express. That been said, he did helm the excellent Snow Angels and All the Real Girls, so who knows, maybe he can return to his former glory.

Little House on the Prairie is based on the semi-autobiographical classic children's book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder written between 1932 and 1943 and centers on farm life in the late 19th Century American West. 

Do you think this proposed project has the potential to be something worth watching or is this just another show that should remain untouched in television history.
