‘Goosebumps’ Gets Director Rob Letterman

Goosebumps lands director Rob Letterman Sony Pictures is in negotiations with director Rob Letterman (Gulliver's Travels) to take the helm on their Goosebumps adaptation.

We reported last January that Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Slayer, Turbo) was brought on to tackle the screenplay. The project has been in development since 2008, with writers such as Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia) and Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Monopoly) tackling the script.

The project is based on the popular series of children's novels by R.L. Stine, which have sold more than 300 million copies worldwide. The series pays homage to classic films such as Night of the Living Dead and other well-known horror icons, replacing gruesome genre elements with kid-friendly jokes. Nothing is known about the story for this big-screen adaptation thus far.

Rob Letterman directed the animated hits Shark Tale and Monsters Vs. Aliens before making his live-action debut with Gulliver's Travels in 2011.

Goosebumps comes to theaters August 7th, 2015.
