Alex Ross Perry (“Queen of Earth,” “Golden Exits”) is set to direct “Fear Street 2,” the second of a proposed trilogy of films based on the R.L. Stine book series of the same name. Leigh Janiak will helm the first and third films all for Chernin Entertainment.
Set in the fictional city of Shadyside, Ohio, the Fear Street pit teenagers against adversaries both human and paranormal. The second one’s story is set at Camp Nightwing, which is divided by the campers and counselors who hail from the prosperous town of Sunnyvale, and the campers and maintenance staffers from the downtrodden Shadyside.
The sequel will shoot in Atlanta this summer and all three films will be released next year with each hitting cinemas a month apart from the previous.
