All the 90s kids say hoooo! Or, noooo! Depending on how you feel about this, lol… So, we all remember R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps series, and the amazingness that was reading your first “horror” book at age nine. My personal collection was wither above or below the massive amounts of Babysitter’s Club books on my bookshelf, but both were near and dear to my heart. I remember when Goosebumps became a TV show for a little while, and that was kinda fun, but now the beloved books are getting ready to come to the big screen. Even though we should be used to our favorite childhood stories getting the Hollywood treatment, this ish is still kinda cray to me! Click inside to learn more!
Complex has the story:
Get ready to feel like you’re ten again: The books that made every 90′s kid’s childhood awesome, Goosebumps, are being turned into a movie that is sure to make our adult lives awesome. According to Slashfilm, Sony acquired the rights to the R.L. Stine book series a few years ago, and is in negotiations with Monsters vs. Aliens director Rob Letterman to direct a film adaptation.
There’s no word on which novel the film will be based off of – or if it will be a collection of vignettes, which would be cool – but Sony apparently has the rights to over 50 over the books. Initial plans were to make the film live-action.
It’s been ages since I read one of these books, but I think they might translate well to film. I liked >Monsters vs. Aliens, so Rob Letterman might be the guy for the job.
What do y’all think? Or are you too nostalgic to think right now? LOL. Sigh… The Cuckoo Clock Of Doom was my ish!
