Adapted for the first time in 2016, the books of R. L. Stine are reborn a second time in the wake of goosebumps. Ready to dive back into the universe ?
With 150 million in revenue at the global box office, with a budget of 58 million, goosebumps came out in 2016, had been a nice little success for Sony, who was in charge of producing the feature-length film. In the Face of the home overall positive assessment of the public and the press, the studios had decided to scratch a little to the saga by offering a sequel to this comedy horror family.
Good or bad, it was never too much to tell you, except that this time, the major asset referred to as Jack Black, will probably not be part of the action to burnish the image of this suite. It is rather unfortunate (and wrong sign).
But me, I’m still here
For the time being, still no news of Jack Black in the role of the author of the novels namesake, R. L. Stine, in spite of the claims Deadline and Hollywood Reporter. And this first trailer we do nothing to support its possible presence. According to Variety, the actor would cost a bit too expensive (between 6 and 8 million per film) for the production, which restricts its budget. Otherwise, horror fans will very quickly notice the new headliners that will replace Dylan Minnette and Odeya Rush.
New film, new story. Exit therefore the older players to make room for a bit of freshness with Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Caleel Harris and Madison Iseman (Jumanji : Welcome to the jungle). Despite a production messy the film will be a more or less direct the first episode. The doll haunted referred to as Slappy will make his great comeback and R. L. Stine is missing. In the passage, Flesh chicken 2 : The Ghosts of Halloween should be called The Revenge of Slappy, so we can find a logical coherent up here.
See the arrival, how the feature happens to get away with it. If goosebumps 2 : Ghosts of Halloween retains its same screenwriter Rob Lieber), it changes from director to pass the baton to Ari Sandel (When We First Met).
The sequel is scheduled for release in France on October 17. One week after Venom and at the same time as First Man, The House That Jack Built and The Predator. Super, Sony, bravo, for the release date.
