Remember Gooosebumps? Of course you do – Columbia Pictures is betting that you do as well, and also that you’ll plunk down 58 bucks (or whatever tickets will cost by the time this comes out) to see a movie made out of those popular children‘s horror books by R.L. Stine. And the news around town is that they’re close to closing a deal on a screenwriter: Darren Lemke, who is the guy who wrote that Jack the Giant Killer movie that’s coming out later this year.

The studio has been trying to get a Goosebumps movie going for several years, but they are apparently starting from square one with Lemke. Goosebumps, of course, was known for having “stinger” endings in which the presumed-eliminated danger was actually still present. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go back down into the basement for some tools… (The Hollywood Reporter)

‘Disturbia’ Writer To Give Kids ‘Goosebumps’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/disturbia-writer-to-give-kids-goosebumps/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/disturbia-writer-to-give-kids-goosebumps/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Carl Ellsworth has signed on to scare the crap out of little kids who don't yet know the horrors of real life. The Disturbia and Red Eye screenwriter will adapt the popular childrens book series Goosebumps for the big screen. Two years ago the writers of 1408 took a crack at the material, but Columbia pictures must have thought it wasn't goosebumpy enough. Back in the day, I used to be a huge fan of this series. I remember flipping through the Scholastic Books order sheet in my 4th grade class and getting psyched when I saw a new Goosebumps was available. Unfortunately The Night of the Living Dummy┬áno longer sends chills up my spine, but the words PAST DUE on an envelope terrify me. (THR)
