Sony Pictures Goosebumps movie which started Jack Black as Stine was a huge hit for the studio, so it only made sense for a sequel.
Now. Three years later Goosebumps 2 is making a return to the silver screen, but novelist RL Stine did a big oops and spilled the tea on the title. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest from Sony Pictures, who has been building the film’s cast.
So far, Sony recently adding Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Reno 911”, “The Goldbergs”, Bridesmaids), Ken Jeong (“Community”, Hangover), and Chris Parnell (Anchorman, Hotrod) to the ensemble.
They will join the previously announced cast of Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Ben O’Brien (Manchester by the Sea), Caleel Harris (“Castle Rock”), and Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT), who are set to star in the Ari Sandel directed project.
RL Stine was excited to tell his fans about the sequel being made, so he took to Twitter to unveil the title of the movie as Goosebumps Slappy Halloween, which is completely different than Sony’s title. The Hollywood giant has titled the film Goosebumps: Horrorland.
RL Stine’s only problem is that the tweet was quickly followed by a delete, since Sony Pictures title is much different.
Here is RL Stine’s Goosebumps 2 Tweet:
The sequel is one of multiple iterations based on the dozens of books in the series that the studio is developing. Neal H. Moritz of Original Film and Deborah Forte of Silvertongue Films are producing.
Goosebumps 2 is set to release on Oct. 12, 2018.
