Goosebumps 2 director has just been announced

Unfortunately, the last bit of news we shared here regarding Sony's upcoming sequel to GOOSEBUMPS was a sordid affair. The story went that there are currently two separate scripts in the works for the sequel, with one featuring Jack Black and one without.

Today's news only confirms this as Sony has just announced they have gone ahead and hired a director for GOOSEBUMPS 2. But get this sh*t, they STILL don't know which of the two scripts they are going to use! Can you believe that silly stack of shenanigans? Sounds like the smart way to make a movie.

Anyhow, Ari Sandel will direct the GOOSEBUMPS 2. Sandel is an Oscar-winning director for Best Short Film in 2007 with WEST BANK STORY. But we all know him as the director of THE DUFF. True story.

How do you feel about all this GOOSEBUMPS 2 mess? Still excited? What did you think of the original film? Make sure to let us know in the new comments section below or on social media! 

GOOSEBUMPS synopsis:

Upset about moving from the big city to a small town, young Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets his beautiful neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush). The teen is surprised to learn that Hannah's mysterious father is R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the famous author of the best-selling "Goosebumps" series. When Zach accidentally unleashes the monsters from the fantastic tales, it's up to Stine, his daughter and Cooper to return the beasts back to the books where they belong.

GOOSEBUMPS 2 is set to hit theaters September 21st, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: I really enjoyed the original Goosebumps film as it sported a charming-ass cast.
