The film doesn’t pull its plot from any of the books directly, but instead centers on a boy (Minnette) who moves in next to children’s horror author R.L. Stine (Black), whose scary stories have all begun to come to life. Minnette and Stine’s niece (Rush) team up to try to stop the madness.
Neal Moritz, Deborah Forte and Jess Siegler produce.
Minnette has starred in “Let Me In” and “Prisoners” and can be seen in “Labor Day” and ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
He is repped by CESD Talent Agency.
