Following the success of Sony’s live-action Goosebumps adaption, it has been announced that as many as three Fear Street novels are in development at 20th Century Fox.
It was initially announced that author R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books had been optioned by Fox back in 2015, however, at the time, only one movie was said to be in development. Now, along with Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon, Scream: The TV Series) on board to direct the project, Variety is reporting that Kyle Killen, Zak Olkewicz and Silka Luisa have all been hired to each write a Fear Street script, although it is currently unknown which books could be up for adaption at this time.
Set in the fictional town of Shadyside, Ohio, the Fear Street series launched back in 1989 when The New Girl was published. That book centered around a high school student falling for the new girl at school who disappears just as quickly as she appears, leaving the student to go in search of her and her secret — which is hidden away on Fear Street. Since the publication of The New Girl, Stine has written over 100 Fear Street titles with the series getting revived in 2013.
As of right now, there is currently no release date for a Fear Street film, as the project still appears to be in the early stages. However, fans of R.L. Stine will get to enjoy the next Goosebumps film, Goosebumps: Horrorland, when it hits theaters in September of 2018.
