I'm sorry, but I'm voting "no" on this one: according to Deadline, Guillermo del Toro is planning to produce a movie adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel The Secret Garden, and it's rumored that his version will be set in the American South at the turn of the 20th Century. The story will be written by Oscar-nominated Beasts Of The Southern Wild co-writer Lucy Alibar.

NO. This is a quintessentially British story. I sat through both Alfonso CuarĂ³n's 1995 A Little Princess adaptation (set in America, but in the appropriate time period) and the 1998 version of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations (both modernized and set in America); I refuse to suffer through anything similar again.
