I don’t hate Jack Black or anything, but here’s my reaction to that:
What the actual f*ck?
Moving on from my intial disbelief, The Wrap recently reported that Jack Black is currently in negotions to star in the film adaptaion of the timeless scary story franchise Goosebumps.
A Goosebumps film sounds good on paper, especially since a good number of us grew up with the age-old book series by R.L. Stine. However, if we add Rob Letterman (the director of the very underwhelming—to say the least—Guillver’s Travels, which also earned Jack some sh*tty ass reviews), and Neal Moritz (the producer of lackluster movies like RIPD and Jack the Giant Slayer), this goes from a really good idea to a really sh*tty idea in less than 3.5 seconds.
Seriously? That’s the creative team behind this thing?
I’m inclined to have a teensy bit of hope for this movie, especially since Goosebumps is a wildly popular book franchise (it’s up there with franchises like Harry Potter). However, with odds like this, I’m not setting my expectations too high.
