Goosebumps to become movie – years after the first book

The middle-grade book series Goosebumps by R. L. Stine is going to become a live-action movie produced by Columbia Pictures. According to Cynopsis Kids, the Goosebumps movie will likely feature unknown young actors as the leads, with well-known actors in supporting roles–just as the Harry Potter movies did.

I like hearing about deals like this. The Goosebumps series has been around for a long time, and now it’s being made into a movie–which means to me that a book can still gain attention years after it’s published. (I think the first book appeared in 1992.) So to me, that’s hopeful news for authors–and publishers. I love it.

Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the info.
