‘Goosebumps’ Eyes Jack Black for the Lead

Jack Black is in talks to star in GoosebumpsJack 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.

The actor will play an author modeled after Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine, whose characters literally come to life, forcing him to hide from his own creations.

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.

Jack Black most recently starred in Bernie, and we reported last month he signed on for a cameo in the upcoming comedy Sex Tape.

Goosebumps comes to theaters October 16th, 2015.
