The long-mooted big-screen adaptation of child-(un)friendly horror anthology Goosebumps, written by American author RL Stine, is finally lining up a director.

According to Deadline, Monsters Vs Aliens‘ Ron Letterman is in negotiations with Sony Pictures for the role.

The most recent draft of the script was completed by Shrek Forever After and Jack The Giant Slayer screenwriter Darren Lemke, although it’s not clear if this is still in use.

Season 2 of the fondly remembered Goosebumps TV series is coming to DVD 25 March 2013. Pre-order it now for £13.99.
