‘Monster High’ Adds Writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage

Monster High adds writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie SavageGossip Girl and Chuck executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have signed on to write and produce Universal's long gestating adaptation Monster High.

We first reported on this project back in June 2010, when Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar signed on to write the screenplay, although they are no longer involved. No plot details were released, but the story will be based on Mattel's toy line of the same name, which features the teenage children of iconic monsters. The toys are popular with tween and teen girls.

The writers are producing under their Fake Empire production company, alongside Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Mattel's newly-formed Playground Productions, which was launched last month and is also overseeing Legendary's Hot Wheels and Dolphin Entertainment's Max Steel. The company also has Masters of the Universe in the works, although they are searching for a new director after Jon M. Chu left the project last month.

Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage most recently produced Endless Love for Universal, which hits theaters on February 14, 2014.

Monster High comes to theaters October 7th, 2016.
