It's been quite some time since we learned that 20th Century Fox was developing films based on R.L. Stine's Fear Street series of books. As far as we know, Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon) was hired to write and direct a trilogy of films that would be filmed and released in close proximity of one another.
Other than that, we have a small update today from Stine today via Twitter, as he has confirmed that those THREE films are still in the works at Fox.
He tweeted, "Every day, people ask me if there will ever be movies based on the Fear Street books. The answer is yes. THREE Fear Street movies are in the works at Fox. While you wait, you might try the newest book..."
It's nice to know that these films are still happening. Let's hope they stay true to the books in terms of more mature content!
Fear Street is a teenage horror fiction series written by American author R. L. Stine, starting in 1989, three years before the creation of the Goosebumps book series. The Fear Street books take place in the fictional city of Shadyside, and feature average teenagers who encounter malignant, sometimes paranormal, adversaries.
