Production is currently under way on the long gestating feature film adaptation of R.L. Stine’s mega-successful Goosebumps books, and the cast has just been filled out with two more names. Read on for the latest!
The Wrap reports that “Veep” star Timothy Simons (pictured) has signed on to give us all Goosebumps along with comic actress Amanda Lund. They join the previously announced Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Halston Sage, and Dylan Minnette.
In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black portrays famed children’s horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it’s up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories.
Goosebumps, which comes from a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Mike White, is set for release on March 23, 2016. It’s produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner and Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
Look for it in theatres on August 7, 2015.
