Jack Black is in negotiations to star in the gestating Goosebumps adaptation. If a deal is finalized, the actor will reunite with his Gulliver's Travels and Shark Tale director Rob Letterman, who signed on to direct in March.
Darren Lemke wrote the most recent draft of the script, which was previously worked on by Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia) and Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Monopoly). Neal H. Moritz is producing alongside Deborah Forte from Scholastic Entertainment, which publishes the books. No production schedule was given.
