One of our favorite actors from the monster mash that was Super 8, young Ryan Lee, will soon be tackling creatures of a different kind. Ones born out of the mind of kid-friendly horror maven R.L. Stein and his unique brand of Goosebumps!
According to Variety, Lee (pictured) has joined the cast of Sony’s adaptation starring Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, and Dylan Minnette. Rob Letterman directs.
The flick follows Dylan Minnette’s character, who moves from New York City to the small town of Greendale, Maryland, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be veteran young adult horror author R.L. Stine (Jack Black).
When all the many demons of Stine’s mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquist’s dummy, it’s up to Minnette’s character and Stine’s niece Hannah (Rush) to put all the evil genies back in the bottle.
Darren Lemke and Mike White wrote the script. Neal H. Moritz produces with Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
