It might not have seemed like Goosebumps made the biggest impact when it arrived on screens either here or in the States, but the Jack Black-fronted comedy horror did well enough that Sony is now trying to line up a sequel.

Director Rob Letterman and writer Darren Lemke are in the middle of hashing out deals to come back for more monster madness, and the studio suits are hoping to snag Black's services once again. He'd be back playing a version of author R.L. Stine, on whose books the movie was based. After nearly two decades spent lingering in development hell, the filmmakers cracked the idea of adapting several of Stine's books for an adventure that sees some of his famous creations let loose from their literary prisons. We'd expect more of the same in any sequel.

There's no indication yet whether the other cast (which included Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette and Odeya Rush) might come back, but the studio is likely just focused on winning Black back. Everyone involved will be hoping it makes it to the screen a little more quickly this time...
