More R.L. Stine related news has hit the wire, and it’s wonderful to see this author getting the love he deserves. It’s LONG overdue. It sounds as if a Goosebumps movie is on the way, and Sony is eying Jack Black to star!
According to The Wrap, Black is close to returning to family fare, as he’s in negotiations to star in the Sony adaptation of Stine’s bestselling book series.
Neal H. Moritz, who helped steer Universal’s Fast & Furious franchise back on the blockbuster track, is producing with Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
If Black’s deal closes, he would reunite with director Rob Letterman, who worked with him on Gulliver’s Travels and Shark Tale.
According to an individual close to the project, Black would play a Stine-like author whose scary characters literally leap off the page, forcing him to hide from his own creepy creations.
