A film version of RL Stein’s Goosebumps series has been on the cards for quite a while, but now it’s finally moving forward with the news that Jack Black is in negotiations to star. If he does sign up, the actor will reunite with his Gulliver’s Travels and Shark Tale director Rob Letterman, according to TheWrap.
The actor will apparently play an author modelled after Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine, whose characters literally come to life, forcing him to hide from his own creations.
Darren Lemke wrote the most recent draft of the script, which was previously worked on by Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia), Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Monopoly). There’s no news on when it might shoot.
