R.L Stine's New Book to Hit the Silver Screen

Fans of R.L Stine -- the child-lit fright master -- take note: The author's new book is going to be made into a feature film. Stine, famous for terrifying children with the Goosebumps and the Fear Street series, will have his latest offering, First Day of School…Forever adapted by Gotham Group into a frightening, yet kid-friendly film.

Published by Feiwel & Friends, Stine’s book will hit shelves on July 5. First Day of School…Forever tells the tale of 12 year-old Artie, who is forced to relive his first day of school until he can find a way to escape his nightmare.

Gotham group CEO and founder Ellen Goldsmith-Vein will produce, and describes the upcoming project as "a thoroughly re-imagined Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Groundhog Day."

Stine, who is oft called the Stephen King of children’s literature, has sold more than 400 million copies of his novels, mainly from the Goosebumps, Fear Street, Mostly Ghostly, Rotten School, and The Nightmare Room series. Both his Goosebumps books and the anthology Haunting Hour have been adapted for television.

Not merely a raconteur of horror, Stine has written numerous joke books under the pen name Jovial Bob Stine. In 2000, Robert Lawrence Stine was certified as the world’s best-selling children’s author in the Guinness Book of Worlds Records Millennium Edition.
