Black circling ‘Goosebumps’ lead.
Jack Black (‘Bernie,’ ‘School of Rock’) is said to be in negotiations to take the lead in director Rob Letterman’s feature adaptation of R.L. Stine’s bestselling young-adult book series ‘Goosebumps.’
According to TheWrap, Black would play “a Stine-like author, whose scary characters literally leap off the page, forcing him to hide from his own creepy creations.”
If Black commits to the long-gesting project, it would mark his third feature with Letterman, having previously collaborated with the director on ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ and ‘Shark Tale.’
