The first poster has arrived for the Guillermo Del Toro-produced “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” a feature film adaptation of the works of author Alvin Schwartz opening August 9th. In addition, the first footage for the project will arrive in the form of a trailer during the Super Bowl tomorrow.
The kid-friendly horror film will include several of Schwartz’s short stories being adapted including “Harold,” about a scarecrow who flays his abusive owner, and “The Red Spot” in which a growing red spot on a girl’s face is actually a subcutaneous spider gestation sack. André Ovredal is directing the project from a script by Daniel Hageman, Kevin Hageman and del Toro.
That’s not all today as MGM will reportedly release the first trailer for the “Child’s Play” remake in the next few days. The clip has been rated and will reportedly be attached to copies of “The Prodigy” opening on Friday. Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry lead the cast about a young boy who winds up in possession of a killer doll.
Finally, a new sneak peek at “Toy Story 4” will be released by Disney and Pixar following the Super Bowl this Sunday.
