Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell

Did you ever read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a kid, leading to much regret as a mostly sleepless or nightmare-laced night followed? Yeah, me too. Me too.

The collection of short horror tales by Alvin Schwartz spanned three books, and the unsettling illustrations (so long as you get the older books with art by Stephen Gammell, NOT the disgraceful newer ones I just found out exist) alone were enough to send ice rushing through your veins. Now someone wants to bring these terrors to life.

It’s been announced that CBS Films has grabbed onto the project after a pitch by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan.

Melton and Dunstan will adapt the stories into a screenplay about a group of outcasts who must face their worst fears in order to save their town.

The duo have written a number of horror flicks together in the past, including Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw: The Final Chapter, Feast, Feast II, Feast III, The Collector, The Collection, and Piranha 3DD. They also directed the latter two titles, and are directing a segment of The ABCs of Death 2.

Now…how long before a movie version of In A Dark, Dark Room follows?
