Rob Letterman (Gulliver’s Travels, Shark Tale) is directing the adaptation of the R.L. Stine books series in which a young boy moves with his mother and sister to the small town of Greendale, Maryland. There, he meets veteran Young Adult horror author R. L. Stine, played by Jack Black. The infamous Slappy – a demonic ventriloquist’s dummy – comes into play and sets free the many many demons of Stine’s mind. Stine’s niece teams with the boy to put all the evil genies back in the bottle.
Filming is set for both Atlanta and Los Angeles.
