Heat Vision reports that Halston Sage will co-star in Sony’s Goosebumps, starring Jack Black. In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black stars as famed children’s horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it’s up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories. Goosebumps is set for release on March 23, 2016.
We previously reported that Sage had also nabbed the role of Kendall in Paramount’s Scouts vs. Zombies. Directed by Christopher Landon, the film follows three scouts who must save their town from a zombie outbreak. The screenplay from Landon is based on Lona Williams and Etan Cohen’s draft of an original script from Emi Mochizuki and Carrie Evans. Also starring Tye Sheridan and Patrick Schwarzenegger, Scouts vs. Zombies is produced by Todd Garner, Andy Fickman, Betsy Sullenger and Bryan Brucks.
