tim burton goosebumps movie

In the 1990s, Tim Burton almost told audiences to say cheese and die with a Goosebumps movie. While a film based on the popular horror series for young readers would eventually splatter monster blood on filmgoers in 2015, writer R.L. Stine recently revealed that a Tim Burton Goosebumps movie was a real possibility in the mid-90s, but never came to pass.

Goosebumps 2 writer

Goosebumps may not have been the best family horror film, but it was surprisingly fun, and apparently a big enough hit to warrant a sequel. Sony has just hired a new writer to pen the latest adventure set in the wild world of R.L. Stine, but the new script comes with a caveat: Jack Black, star of the first Goosebumps, may not be returning for Goosebumps 2. The latest treatment from the new Goosebumps 2 writer does not include a part for Black’s take on R.L. Stine.

Fear Street Movie Trilogy

R.L. Stine’s signature children’s horror series Goosebumps has already been given the feature film treatment, but now his more mature book series Fear Street is heading to the big screen. However, this adaptation of the young adult series may shake things up a bit when it comes to how they’re released into theaters.

20th Century Fox is looking to release three different Fear Street films that would be shot back-to-back and then also release back-to-back one month after another. We’re basically looking at a Netflix binge for a theatrically released franchise. Read More »

Goosebumps rap

Believe it or not, there was a time when movies were accompanied by blatant crossover theme songs, especially from rap artists in the 1990s, with music videos set within the world of the movie itself. Thankfully, that tradition has been revived today.

Nerdist rounded up Jack Black to perform with their very own Malik Forte, aka MF Bumps, to perform a 90s inspired Goosebumps rap, and it’s just as glorious as you would imagine. Watch it below! Read More »

‘Goosebumps’ Trailer: Jack Black Is R.L. Stine

Goosebumps trailer

For people of a certain age, the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine were the introduction to reading, and to horror, and probably to many other things. Now there’s a Goosebumps movie, with Jack Black as the lead, playing a fictionalized version of Stine himself, and Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, and Kumail Nanjiani playing characters who end up touched by the not-so-fictional world and creatures created by the writer. Check out the Goosebumps trailer below. Read More »

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.
