“Monsters vs. Aliens” and “Gulliver’s Travels” director Rob Letterman is in talks to helm the live-action film adaptation of children’s horror series “Goosebumps” at Sony Pictures and Original Films.
Author R.L. Stine’s highly successful series comprises more than 50 books that often pay homage to classic sci-fi/horror movies. After scoring the rights to the book series in 2008, Sony has hired numerous scribes to adapt the property without much success.
Neal Moritz and Deborah Forte are producing. The project marks the property’s first film treatment and is a potential franchise launcher for the studio. The “Goosebumps” series have sold more than 300 million copies worldwide.
