‘Goosebumps’ Principal Photography Begins

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s an old saying handed down by the mystics that suggests “Those who have not read a Goosebumps book, are probably not worth knowing.” It’s a great quote to live by and can fully prepare people for the world. Hopefully the latest film adaptation will bring more people back to the books, thus making more people worth knowing. Starring Jack Black as the books’ author R.L. Stine, the film has recently begun principal photography and will be shooting in and around Conyers, Madison and Atlanta, Georgia.

Like many of the Goosebumps books, the plot sees a young boy called Zach (Dylan Minnette) move to a new town where he befriends Hannah (Odeya Rush). It soon turns out that Hannah’s father is R.L Stine, who, far from being an author, uses his books to lock away the monsters from his imagination. Of course, Zach manages to let them loose. »

Sony Casts Ken Marino In Goosebumps

10 April 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Most audiences are likely familiar with Ken Marino’s face, but it’s his name that isn’t quite as recognizable. At least, not yet. Despite giving excellent performances on TV in shows like Party Down and Children’s Hospital, and on the big screen in films like the recent, and criminally under-seen Bad Milo, the actor still hasn’t achieved the level of fame that he deserves.

That may all change very shortly though as Deadline is reporting that Sony has cast Marino in their upcoming Ya adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps, which already boasts a cast that includes Jack Black, Amy Ryan and Dylan Minnette. Directed by Rob Letterman, the film will have Marino playing the “blowhard coach” of Greendale High, who “wades into battle when monsters overrun the school.”
