Jack Black is in negotiations to star in the adaptation of R.L. Stine's book series "Goosebumps" at Sony Pictures.
Black would play a Stine-like author whose scary characters literally leap off the page, forcing him to hide from his own creations.
Rob Letterman is directing, he and Black having previously worked together on "Gulliver's Travels" and "Shark Tale".
Neal H. Moritz and Deborah Forte are producing
