Paramount Pictures is developing a film adaptation of the '90s anthology show Are You Afraid Of the Dark ? with the writer of 2017's It attached to pen the script and produce the project. The series was originally a Canadian production that was eventually picked up by American network Nickelodeon. It starred Ross Hull, Daniel DeSanto and Raine Pare-Coull, among many others.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, It and Annabelle: Creation's Gary Dauberman will adapt the series that, from the perspective of a group of teens telling stories around a camp fire, depicted various tales of terror, from modern takes on fairy tales to original takes on monsters, vampires and aliens.
Dauberman told THR, "The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. We're going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves."
It's been a good year for Dauberman, as It and Annabelle: Creation have grossed over $683 million and $305 million, respectively, worldwide.
Paramount's Are You Afraid of the Dark? film hasn't been given a release date.
