Sony Pictures and David Gordon Green have tentative plans to bring Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic book series to the big screen in a feature film version of Little House on the Prairie, Deadline reports.

The nine-book story first began in 1932 with the publication of "Little House in the Big Woods", recalling Wilder's own recollections of growing up with her family in a log cabin in 1871. The second book was titled "Little House on the Prairie" and its title became associated with the overall series.

The property is also well-known for its adaptation into a long-running television series, first aired between 1974 and 1984.

Green, who most recently directed The Sitter, would direct with a script by Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady).
