A feature film based on R.L. Stine’s Fear Street novels has long been in development. When we interviewed him in 2015, the author said that he hoped to have big news to share soon and at long last, Stine has confirmed that the film is now in preproduction and indicated that the studio is on the hunt for a screenplay.
In a recent Tweet, Stine said: “The Fear Street movie is in production. Yaaay. Now we are waiting for a good script. Watch for it next year, I think.”
In another Tweet, the author conveyed this tidbit: “The Fear Street movie will be an original story. There may be MORE THAN ONE Fear Street movie!”
Stine also offered his take on the screenplay for Goosebumps 2, which is poised for release on January 26th, 2018: “Sony Columbia has scheduled the GB movie sequel for a year from now. I’ve heard the story, and it’s pretty amazing.”
No word just yet on a targeted release date. But stay tuned to Wicked Horror for more on this project as we learn it!
