Dylan Minnette (Labor Day) and Odeya Rush (The Giver) have been cast alongside Jack Black in the upcoming big screen adaptation of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps. They will take on two of the lead roles in the film. Gulliver's Travels director Rob Letterman is developing the film.
According to Deadline the film is loosely based on the series and "Minnette will play Zach Cooper, who moves with his family move from NY to to the idyllic town of Greendale, MD, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be author R.L. Stine (Black). When the many, many demons in Stine’s mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquist’s dummy, it’s up to Zach and Stine’s niece Hannah (Rush) to put the evil genies back in the bottle."
This was a really fun series to read, and I hope the movie turns out to be a good representation of them. The initial plot of the film sounds pretty generic, but let's wait and see how it plays out.
