‘Goosebumps’ Won’t Hit Theaters Until 2016…

I’m not a fan of Monsters vs Aliens, Shark Tale or Gulliver’s Travels, which is why I’m not getting overly excited to see Rob Letterman get behind the camera for the “Goosebumps” adaptation, even if the premise is cool.

When we get closer to the newly set March 23, 2016 date, that’s when I’ll gauge my feelings towards Sony’s children’s horror tale that is to star Jack Black.

The story is loosely based on the series and follows Minnette’s character who moves from New York City to the small town of 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 ventriloquist’s dummy, it’s up to Minnette’s character and Stine’s niece Hannah to put all the evil genies back in the bottle.

    Yeesh. I like Monsters vs. Aliens alright but those other 2 are just awful. I do think the plot sounds awesome as well but the inclusion of Black has me a bit worried. I REALLY hope they don’t make this a comedy. This was one of my favorite shows growing up!

    Wait, Jack Black is PLAYING R.L. Stine? Ugh, I really hope he can keep his comedic side hidden during this movie because that is terrible casting. I wonder why it’s not coming out until 2016. They already have most of the script and cast, so that’s really strange. I’m happy to see Slappy’s name there, though. He scared the shit out of me as a kid, so I’m looking forward to seeing his creepy face again.
