Reader beware. You may not be scared, but you hardcore R.L. Stein fans might just cream your jeans at this splendid news about Goosebumps 2!
We knew that a follow-up to the 2015 theatrical adaptation of sorts of the Goosebumps series was happening. However, what we didn’t know is that it was happening this fast! The news came to my attention quite suddenly via Box Office authorities, Exhibitor Relations Twitter handle, stating that Goosebumps 2 was officially green-lit and has an official early Winter release date of January 26, 2018!
Collider reports that Goosebumps director Rob Letterman and writer Darren Lemke will be returning to work their magic on the sequel for a second time around. In regards to the original cast however, no word if they will return for the second film, including funny man Jack Black as the master of ceremonies, R.L. Stein. Although personally speaking, I’d be a little surprised given the charm Black brought to the first film, if he wasn’t on the follow-up’s cast roster.
All I know is, I want to see more of ‘The Haunted Mask’ in this sequel. Can we make that happen Sony? Please and thank you.
