Get the details on the flip about Goosebumps 2…
Critics mostly dug it, families were entertained, and the film earned $157m worldwide on the back of its $58m production budget. So, Sony is moving forward on a sequel to its 2015 family fright fest, closing deals to bring back director Rob Letterman and writer Darren Lemke.
Yup, Goosebumps 2 is a go!
No as of yet as to whether or not Jack Black will return, though The Hollywood Reporter (who broke the story) says that they’re pursuing him. You can probably go ahead and assume that he’s gonna say “Yes”.
Script’s being worked on, casting negotiations are underway. Expect Sony to turn this one round relatively quickly, folks.
Goosebumps 2 is currently in the works. There is no release date or scheduled date at this time. We would guess either late 2017 for the holidays before Star Wars Episode VIII hits theaters and dominates the box office.
