‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Is Getting Big Screen Treatment!!!

VIA:  Bloody Disgusting

What do you get when you mix scary stories with the writers of some of the Saw films? Presumably pure awesomeness.

One of my favorite childhood books is getting adapted as CBS Films has sprung for a pitch from Saw, Piranha 3DD, Pacific Rim and Feast writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to adapt Alvin Schwartz’s classic spooky tale collection “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” Deadline reports.

There was a competitive bidding for the project, which will see Melton and Dunstan adapt some of the “Scary” short stories into a screenplay “about a group of outcast kids who stand up to their fears to save their town when nightmares come to life.

Sean Daniel and Jason Brown of Sean Daniel Company and Elizabeth Grave of 1212 Entertainment will produce.

Daniels and Brown initially optioned rights before teaming up with Melton and Dunstan, who are repped by WME and Trevor Engelson at Underground.
