R.L. Stine’s beloved horror series “Goosebumps” is making its way to the big screen. “Jack the Giant Killer” writer Darren Lemke was hired to pen a script for the movie back in 2012, and now it’s being reported that “Monsters vs. Aliens” director Rob Letterman is in negotiations to helm the project.
Deadline has the news, stating that this isn’t a done deal yet. Letterman has experience with both animated and live action, CGI-heavy films, and our guess is that this “Goosebumps” adaptation will be the latter. He certainly knows how to make movies that cater to families, though this will be his first foray into the world of horror.
Stine’s books became a staple of elementary school libraries when they were introduced in the early ’90s. Here is a list of suggestions of classic “Goosebumps” stories to use as fodder for this movie based solely on their awesome titles:
» “Say Cheese and Die!”
» “Let’s Get Invisible!”
» “Night of the Living Dummy”
» “Piano Lessons Can Be Murder”
» “Why I’m Afraid of Bees”
» “Go Eat Worms!”
» “Phantom of the Auditorium”
» “The Cuckoo Clock of Doom”
» “A Shocker on Shock Street”
» “The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena”
And for the sequel, of course, the 1996 classic “Say Cheese and Die – Again!” Goodness but we miss the ’90s sometimes.
