From the Rob Letterman, creator of Shark Tale and Monsters vs. Aliens , we will be getting a big screen version of the show that shaped most of my childhood: Goosebumps.
The film will hit theaters March 23, 2016 and will star Jack Black. I’m not yet sure if I am excited or terrified by this idea but the premise does sound pretty cool. Goosebumps was a huge part of my childhood both in TV and print. It shaped who I am today so for that I will keep an open mind on this project. And it does feature my favorite demonic puppet!
The story is loosely based on the series follows Minnette’s character who moves from New York City to the small town Greendale, Maryland, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be veteran young adult horror author R. L. Stine (Black). When all the many demons of Stine’s mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquists dummy, it’s up to Minnette’s character and Stine’s niece Hannah to put all the evil genies back in the bottle.
