And they keep on coming! Not only do we have two new cast members for the feature film adaptation of R.L. Stine's GOOSEBUMPS, but the film has now been slated with a new release date that will put it in theaters an entire year sooner than originally planned. According to The Wrap, "Veep" star Timothy Simons has signed on to star in the film along with comic actress Amanda Lund (pictured). They join the previously announced Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Halston Sage, and Dylan Minnette.
In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black stars as famed children's horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it's up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories.
GOOSEBUMPS, which comes from a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Mike White, now has a new release date of August 7th, 2015. It's produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner and Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
