Goosebumps 1

The Sony Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 could more appropriately have been titled “Goosebumps.” After a super-short mention of the upcoming Chris Columbus film Pixels, author R.L. Stine popped on screen to tell fans about Goosebumps, which opens in Summer 2015. Director Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) showed up for the panel, along with star Jack Black, a mere two days after they wrapped production. The pair debuted some new footage and news regarding the meta storyline of the film, in which the characters from all of Stine’s Goosebumps books escape the original manuscripts.

Below, read more about the Goosebumps movie trailer and panel from San Diego Comic-Con.

Jack Black Goosebumps

Columbia could’ve gone any number of ways with its Goosebumps movie, with literally dozens of Goosebumps books to draw from. But it chose to go the meta route, casting Jack Black as a fictionalized version of real-life Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine and pitting him against the very monsters that made him famous.

It’s something of a change of pace for Black, who plays slobs and screw-ups more often than he does bookish types. On the other hand, the film’s goofy tone looks right up his alley. Check out the first Goosebumps images, which also feature Odeya Rush and Dylan Minnette, after the jump.

Jack Black / Tim Robbins

After chronicling the 2000 Bush-Gore debacle with 2008′s Recount and John McCain’s failed 2008 presidential run with last year’s Game Change, Jay Roach is once again diving into the world of politics for HBO. But this time, the crisis being depicted is totally fictional.

Roach has just cast Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the HBO comedy pilot The Brink, about three “disparate and desperate” men facing the possibility of World War III. More plot details after the jump.

Jack Black in Gulliver's Travels

If you think about it, a normal-sized person stumbling onto an island populated by a minuscule race sounds like just the kind of twisted concept that horror writer R.L. Stine might’ve come up with. So maybe it’s appropriate that his Goosebumps series will be brought to life by the same team that made Gulliver’s Travels.

Director Rob Letterman signed on to the Sony project several months back, and now he plans to bring his Gulliver’s Travels star Jack Black along with him for the ride. Hit the jump for plot details and more.

Adult Wolf

When MTV unveiled their new take on Teen Wolf in 2011, their efforts were initially met with eyerolls from folks old enough to remember the original Teen Wolf. The new series didn’t bear much of a resemblance to its ostensible source material, which had been a somewhat cheesy ’80s comedy. If anything, the new show was much more like the angsty Twilight, with its ripped, frequently shirtless shapeshifters.

But perhaps it’s for the best that MTV took the property in an entirely different direction after all. Because according to Jack Black‘s new Teen Wolf sequel Adult Wolf, Scott Howard’s life went on a steep downward trajectory after adolescence. ”Back in high school I had it all: Brains, skills, girls, but after graduation, everything just fell apart,” he reflects. “Now I’ve got no job, no girlfriend, and one very annoying roommate.” Check out the “sizzle reel” after the jump.
