R.L. Stine's It's the First Day of School...Forever! will get the big screen treatment

04.28.2011

I don't know what I would have done without R.L. Stine's books. There's still even a spot on my bookshelf filled with many of his titles. Even now I often want to go back and revisit the children's horror books I came to love so much. When I hear that another one of Stine's books has been optioned for the big screen, this makes me happy. Well, as long as it doesn't turn out like anything from the GOOSEBUMPS television series.

One of Stine's newest books, "It's the First Day of School...Forever!" has been optioned by the Gotham Group (producers behind ABDUCTION starring Taylor Lautner) for the feature film treatment. The book tells the story of, "12-year-old Artie, whose second day at his new school is exactly like his first, which just happened to be the worst day of his life. The boy finds himself reliving the same horrible day and must find a way to change his nightmare." The book will hit shelves in July.

The Gotham Group gave their vision for the adaptation as, "a thoroughly reimagined Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Groundhog Day," also saying it combines the elements that have made Stine a household name among the kid-lit set, namely horror and humor." Gotham will soon attach a writer before shopping the project to studios.

Fear Street anyone?

I find it odd that alot of R.L. Stine news always happens to mention his Goosebumps series, but never Fear Street. Everyone I talk to never seems to talk about Fear Street. THOSE are what I grew up on: much more mature, bloddy, weird, and scary. I'm talking about The Knife, The Surprise Party, First Date, One Evil Summer, Silent Night, The Cheerleaders, The New Evil, etc....anyone else like these better than Goosebumps?

Fear Street! Thank you so much for reminding me about those. Seriously, I kept thinking "Wait, I remember liking something else from Stine. Not Goosebumps, not the TV show,what was it?" It was Fear Street. Those really creeped me out as a kid, and I enjoyed them WAY more than Goosebumps. Can't believe my brain completely shoved them into a hole before now. Thanks!

How I Learned To Fly

Loved that book when I was like 10. (Reread it a few years ago...doesn't really hold up, but the concept is still awesome)

I have a treatment for it somewhere around here...one of these days I'll actually write it.
