Following the Goosebumps franchise being adapted for the big screen, 20th Century Fox is now adapting an upcoming trilogy of films based on R.L. Stine's Fear Street book series. We had previously reported that Honeymoon filmmaker Leigh Janiak and Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell) were to split directorial duties, but it now looks like Janiak will direct all three films.
The Hollywood Reporter also let us know that Ashley Zukerman, Fred Hechinger, Julia Rehwald and Jeremy Ford have joined on to star.
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.
