An adaption of the scariest reading experience of your childhood is getting closer to the big screen. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has been in development for a couple of years now. Recently, screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Frankenweenie) was brought on board to write a version of the script and that script has now caught the attention of Hellboy/Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro who has boarded the project as producer and director.

Yes!





The book of scary short stories is most notable for the illustrations by Stephen Gammell which got the book banned from many libraries across the US. Luckily, here in Canada, we didn't have that trouble and the book quickly became a fascination of mine.


Synopsis:
A group of kids face their fears in order to save their town.






In other Scary Stories news, filmmaker Cody Meirick is bringin a documentary about the book to us soon. More on that here.

That's all for now, folks!
