Rob Letterman Has Goosebumps!

Jason McDonald

How great is it to be a grown man talking about Goosebumps in 2013? Life sure is grand!  According to Deadline Sony Pictures is looking at Rob Letterman to sit in the directors chair for it’s Goosebumps movie.  It would, of course, be based on the classic R.L. Stine books of the same name.

Assuming that Goosebumps would be a family friendly horror movie, Rob seems like the perfect choice to helm the project.  So far he’s directed such family affairs as Monsters Vs Aliens, Shark Tales and Gullivers Travels.  So he certainly knows his way around a family project.   However, can he create something with a little edge to it?  Goosebumps may be “kiddie,” but that book series went to some pretty dark places.

Of all the books they could bring to film, which one do you think would make for the best movie?

        Slappy instantly comes to mind…could be really fun and creepy…but it would kinda be treading water by this point. :(

        If they’re shooting for a one-off big-deal movie, it might be fun to try and include several of Goosebumps memorable monsters in one terrifying onslaught.

        It’s a tough one, this.

          I can’t imagine anything more terrifying than Slappy running around tossing Monster Blood on people.

        They should make a game as well based on those choose your own path Goosebumps books.

        I thought the tv series was good enough (although I haven’t watched it since I don’t know when). Feels strange that they are making this now. Are the books becoming popular again or are there new ones?
