GOOSEBUMPS Movie Gets Release Date and Cast

Goosebumps is a series of horror books I’ve read when I was a kid, and it was on of my favorite books back then. The news that it’s being  adapted into a live-action series (it had a TV show in the past) really got me excited. Of course I’m not expecting it to be a super great horror movie, well, because the book was targeting a young audience and we expect the movie to do quite the same. But one thing’s for sure, this will be nostalgic for fans.

Rob Letterman (Gulliver’s Travels, Shark Tale) will be directing the movie in which a young boy moves with his mother and sister to the small town of Greendale. There, the young boy meets veteran Young Adult horror author R.L. Stine (played by Jack Black). One of the iconic characters in the book, Slappy – the demonic ventriloquist dummy, comes in and sets free the many demons and creatures in Stine’s mind. R.L. STine’s niece teams up with the boy to battle it out with the evil creatures and bring things back to normal.

Dated for a release on August 7, 2015 – Odeya Rush, Timothy Simons, Amanda Lund, Dylan Minnete, Amy Ryan, Jillian Bell, Ryan Lee are all set to join Jack Black in Sony’s Goosebumps.
