R.L. Stine’s children’s horror series, ‘Goosebumps,’ is perhaps the most popular youth book series in history, surpassed only by J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’.

‘Goosebumps’ has sold more than 300 million copies worldwide, has been translated into more than 32 languages, and was adapted as a TV series by Scholastic Entertainment in the mid-90’s and again in the mid-2000’s. Now, the book series which celebrated it’ 20th anniversary last year, is being developed for the big screen by ‘Fast & Furious’ producer, Neal H. Horitz.

Horitz, joined by Scholastic Entertainment’s Deborah Forte, has hired ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ and ‘Shark Tale’ director, Rob Letterman for the project. On the weekend, TheWrap announced that ‘Bernie’ actor, Jack Black, is in talks to star in the upcoming feature.

If cast, Black would play a Stine-like author whose creepy fictional characters would come to life and literally jump from the pages he has written, forcing him to run and hide from his own creations.

The ‘Goosebumps’ series features over 60 titles including ‘Say Cheese and Die!’, ‘Stay Out of the Basement’, ‘Night of the Living Dummy’, ‘Welcome to the Dead House’, and ‘A Night in Terror Tower’.
