This could either be really epic or really lame. Our 11-year-old self is praying for the former.
In the 90s, if you weren't carrying around a copy of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps, you might as well be invisible. No really, you didn't matter if you weren't engrossed in the stories of Cold Lake, Horrorland or that deranged evil snowman!
The books spawned a TV show, which was decent, but fans of the series have been waiting almost a decade for word that a movie would be made based on the franchise. Today, consider your prayers answered.
Columbia Pictures has settled on a scribe to pen the mildy-horrifying kid's flick. Screenwriter Carl Ellsworth, whose other works include Red Dawn and Disturbia, will be given the honor of melding an awesome collection of mystery and horror stories into one movie.
That's a pretty solid sounding resume to us! Get moving Carl! We're ready to be in for a scare!
Are U excited about Goosebumps getting the movie treatment?
