You know what would be cosmic revenge for all the watered down PG13 nonsense we’ve been exposed to over the last several decades? If someone would take a story from children’s author and Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine and turn it into an R-rated slaughterfest! Of course that’s never going to happen, but a guy can dream, can’t he?
Variety reports that Furst Films has bought feature rights to R.L. Stine’s The Sitter, which is centered on horror in the Hamptons.
Siblings Sean and Bryan Furst will produce along with longtime Stine collaborators Yvonne Bernard and Beth Hawk. Stine — best known for penning the aforementioned Goosebumps series — will executive produce along with Jane Stine and Ann Blanchard.
The Sitter is focused on a young woman who takes a summer job as a nanny to a 4-year-old who hasn’t spoken for months and is seemingly haunted by something too horrible for words.
