We’re just over a month away from the release of the long-awaited Goosebumps feature film, unleashing all of R.L. Stine’s beloved monsters onto the big screen on October 16th. We simply cannot wait for the books to come to life, and given their enduring popularity, the film is almost a guaranteed box office success.

As reported by The Tracking Board, Sony is so confident Goosebumps will rake in big money on its opening weekend that they’ve already begun developing a sequel. According to the site, the studio is actively seeking a writer to pen the screenplay, and they’re hopeful that an entire film franchise is in the future.

Of course, whether or not more Goosebumps movies get made is entirely dependent on how well the first movie performs at the box office, and there’s no way to be 100% certain that audiences will rush to theaters as they’re expected to. But with positive buzz building, it’s pretty much a sure thing that a sequel will follow.

In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.

It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
