Illustration for article titled Guillermo Del Toros iScary Stories to Tell in the Dark/i Adaptation Is Finally Moving Forward Again

It has been ages since we heard about Guillermo Del Toro’s adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the iconic children’s horror novel trilogy by Alvin Schwartz. But there’s finally more news, and it’s good stuff: Lego Movie writers Dan and Kevin Hageman have been tapped to write the script.


The Hageman brothers (who are also developing a script for Ninjago spinoff film in the wake of the success of The Lego Movie) replace previous writer John August. Del Toro is still potentially going direct the film as well as produce it—one of many, many projects he’s rumored and confirmed to be attached to at the moment (although now we know directing Pacific Rim 2 isn’t one of those).
