There is surely no better candidate to re-launch Marvel’s resident horror creature Man-Thing than R.L. Stine. If you’ve ever read or seen his Goosebumps series, you’ll know Stine has a unique brand of pulp horror mixed with knowing humour. Now, he brings that strong authorial voice to this new five-part mini-series. However, while fans of the writer will love it, some of Stine’s creative decisions might turn off longtime Marvelites.

In Man-Thing #1, the tragic creature formally known as Dr. Ted Sallis has regained his intelligence and ability to speak and has made the unlikely choice to come to Hollywood to try his hand at being a monster movie star. It’s a significant move away from the traditional depiction of the characters as a dumb – in the literal sense – beast who hides away from society in his swamp. »

Writer Comes On Board the Fear Street Film

14 February 2017 9:25 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're one step closer to seeing Shadyside on the big screen, as 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have hired a writer to pen their film based on Fear Street, the popular book series that R.L. Stine created before Goosebumps.

The Tracking Board reports that Kyle Killen has been hired to write the screenplay for the Fear Street film. The movie is expected to be an adaptation of the book series, although Stine himself recently revealed on Twitter that "the Fear Street movie will be an original story" and to "watch for it next year." He also mentioned that "there may be more than one Fear Street movie."

Killen has worked steadily as a writer since the early 2010s, working on the TV series Lone Star, Awake, and Mind Games, as well as writing the screenplays for the Jodie Foster-directed The Beaver, the thriller Scenic Route, and the upcoming Sinbad. »

Odds are that either you or some of your friends in middle school were addicted to horror stories penned by acclaimed writer R.L. Stine, namely from series such as Fear Street and Goosebumps.  In the time since being originally published, the latter made the jump to comic books, so it’s highly appropriate that Stine take the next step by assuming the reins on Man-Thing.

Originating during a time when the lines between superhero and monster comics were becoming evermore blurred, the tragic Man-Thing has since gone on to become a cult favorite among True Believers and has even appeared in various animated series as well as an all but forgotten film released in 2005.

New September 2018 Release Date for Goosebumps Sequel

9 February 2017 2:26 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Less than one month after its January 26th, 2018 release date was announced, Sony Pictures has moved its Goosebumps sequel to a September 2018 slot on the calendar.

Deadline reports (and Box Office Mojo confirms) that Goosebumps 2 is now set to come out in theaters on September 21st, 2018. The new release date is within reaching distance of the Halloween season and is likely a more fitting slot for the adaptation of R.L. Stine's popular book series (the first Goosebumps movie came out on October 16th of 2015).

While plot details are unknown at this time, Rob Letterman and Darren Lemke, the director and writer of the first film, respectively, are returning for the follow-up film, along with producers Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz.

Jack Black has not officially been announced to reprise his role as horror author R.L. Stine, but he is expected to once again star in the sequel. »

R.L. Stine Gives Status Update on Fear Street Film

8 February 2017 1:32 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in October of 2015, horror fans who have a soft spot for Shadyside received an early Halloween treat when it was reported that a Fear Street movie was in the works at 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment. Since that autumn, the news front on the project has been relatively quiet, but R.L. Stine himself recently broke that silence during a Twitter Q&A.

On the evening of February 7th, Stine answered questions from fans on his Twitter page, and when he was asked about the Fear Street movie, he tweeted this response:

“The Fear Street movie is in production. Yaaay. Now we are waiting for a good script. Watch for it next year, I think.”

When another fan inquired about which Fear Street novel the film will be based on, Stine revealed some interesting (and surprising) news:

“The Fear Street movie will be an original story. There may be »

Captain Underpants Poster Summons a New Kind of Superhero

3 February 2017 3:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in December, Dreamworks Animation gave fans their first look at the long-awaited animated adaptation Captain Underpants, which is getting set to hit theaters on June 2. While it still remains to be seen when the first trailer may arrive, the studio has unveiled the first poster, offering another look at this hero and his own version of Batman's "Bat-signal." Instead of the iconic Bat logo, though, this signal features the title characters' trademark tighty whitey underpants.

This poster, which debuted on Nerdist today, also reveals the movie's full title, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. It isn't clear if the "First Epic Movie" is signalling that this is the first in a series of movies, or that it's merely the first movie to be based on the popular book series written by Dav Pilkey, which has spanned 12 books. This movie will also help celebrate the 20th anniversary of first book's debut. »

Saw: Legacy Casts Laura Vandervoort & Hannah Anderson

25 January 2017 8:54 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lionsgate is looking to play another gruesome game on the big screen with a new Saw movie, and now the first two cast members have joined the ranks of the eighth film in the franchise of bone-crunching snares, flesh-ripping traps, and malevolent mind games.

Variety reports that Laura Vandervoort and Hannah Anderson have joined the cast of Saw: Legacy.

Scheduled for an October 27th, 2017 release, Saw: Legacy is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead) from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. The story is based on the original Saw world created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, which kicked off with a 2003 short film that was soon followed by a feature version that made a big impact on the modern horror scene.

The franchise’s producers Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules are all returning to back Saw: Legacy.

Goosebumps Sequel Stalks January 2018 Release Date

18 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Chalk it up to the low expectations going into the film’s release, or simply the lack of marketing from Sony’s end, but Rob Letterman’s Goosebumps proved to be one of the sleeper hits of 2015. Critics and audiences alike took to the family-friendly scarefest, which conjured up a healthy $150 million box office cume off the back of a $58m budget. A sequel was quickly green lit back in April but since then, all has been quiet on the R.L. Stine front. That is, until now.

Exhibitor Relations claims the tentatively titled Goosebumps 2 has been earmarked for release on January 26, 2018. No other information was divulged, but we know from previous reports that Sony has locked down the core creative team of Rob Letterman, screenwriter Darren Lemke, and producers Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz for another round of supernatural thrills and spills.

Things are shaping up pretty well behind the scenes, »

If R.L. Stine's Goosebumps books hold a special place in your heart (and on your reading shelf), then you know that there are seemingly countless stories to be told from within the spines of the spooky tales.

Moritz.

Since it was announced last year, there’s been very little word on Goosebumps 2, but now Sony has revealed that the sequel to the 2015 film will be released on January 26th, 2018 with several of the crew returning.

Rob Letterman, the original’s director, is set to return alongside Goosebumps‘ writer Darren Lemke. Sony also wants Jack Black to come back as Goosebumps series author R.L. Stine and while nothing is confirmed yet, he is apparently expected to return to the role. While Black is in talks to come back, there’s no word yet on the return of the young cast members, or whether the sequel will follow the lead of the books by focusing on a new group of children to save the day.

Sony Pictures has set a January 26, 2018 release date for their family-friendly adventure sequel Goosebumps 2. As of now, the sequel has no direct competition on its new release date, but it will be sandwiched between a few heavy hitters in the early months of 2018.
