Project Casting

‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Movie will bring back your childhood nightmares to the big screen.

Many kids growing up in the 1980’s and 1990’s can remember the frightening stores, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” and according to recent reports, the book is being made into a movie.

Deadline.com has recently reported that CBS Films has accepted the plans from “Saw” writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to transform the short stories into a movie that centers on a group of outcast kids who work to save the town when their nightmares come true.

So get prepared for your favorite stories such as “The Dead Man’s Hand,” “The Hook,” and “The Big Toe”  to return after all these years.

What made the book so scary was in part due to the illustrator Stephen Gammell, so hopefully the movie will incorporate the haunting visions of the illustrator.

The author, Alvin Schwartz wrote three “Scary Storie” editions,e ash released between 1981 and 1991. The stories were backed on urban legends, and folklore.

There is no word yet on who will star in the movies, nor who will direct the feature film.

What do you think about the new movie? Do you think the writers of “Saw” can create a horrifying feature film with so many short stories? Should this be a kids film or a major production? Share with us your thoughts in the comments below!
