Young actors Odeya Rush (“We Are What We Are,” “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”) and Dylan Minnette (“Prisoners,” “Let Me In”) have scored the lead roles in Rob Letterman’s “Goosebumps” movie at Sony Pictures.
Based on R.L. Stine’s popular book series, Jack Black plays Mr. Shivers, a Stine-like author whose scary characters literally leap off the page. He’s soon forced to hide from his own creations.
Rush will play Black’s quirky and mysterious niece, who teams up with her recently relocated young male neighbor (Minnette) to battle the monsters unleashed from Mr. Shivers’ works.
Neal H. Moritz and Deborah Forte will produce.
