I missed the R.L. Stine boat by a few years, but from what I’m told they’re pretty great. Today it was revealed that Furst Films has bought feature rights to Stine’s The Sitter, centered on horror in the Hamptons. The story focuses on a young woman who takes a summer job as a nanny to a 4-year-old who hasn’t spoken for months and is seemingly haunted by something too horrible for words (I’m dying to know what it is already). Siblings Sean Furst and Bryan Furst will produce along with longtime Stine collaborators Yvonne Bernard and Beth Hawk. Stine — best known for penning the “Goosebumps” series — will exec produce along with Jane Stine and Ann Blanchard. The Fursts produced Daybreakers for Lionsgate. The horror pic, starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe, opens Today.
