Goosebumps 2 has been officially renamed to Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween. It seems as though Sony has been struggling with what to title the follow-up, with the previous Slappy Halloween and HorrorLand now distant memories. We weren’t keen on those titles if we’re being totally honest.
Not much has been revealed in terms of the film’s plot, but Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween will see the welcome return of Jack Black as the quirky R. L. Stine. Additional stars are Chris Parnell, Ken Jeong, and Wendi McLendon-Covey.
Slappy the sinister dummy will also be returning and the sequel will, again, see him wreak some kind of terror on a new bunch of people. Hopefully, we’ll be treated to even more monsters from the Goosebumps stories, because the first film did well to introduce us to some classic monsters from the series, but we want more!
Ari Sandel will direct the film from a script written by Rob Lieber.
More as it comes!
