'It' Screenwriter To Pen, Produce 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark'

'It' Screenwriter To Pen, Produce 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark'”

Paramount Players is moving forward with an adaptation of the classic Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark" as a feature film and set "It" scribe Gary Dauberman to write the script. Each episode was dedicated to a single legend, with the kids - who referred to themselves as "The Midnight Society" - telling the tale and book-ending each episode.

"The show is about the shared experience of telling stories - especially scary ones", Dauberman, who also wrote Annabelle: Creation, told THR.

Paramount Players is a new division at Paramount Pictures that is led by Awesomeness founder Brian Robbins and focuses on contemporary talent and properties for young audiences while drawing upon the vast resources of the Viacom brands.

Dauberman has emerged this year as one of the hottest scribes in town, nearly having a billion-dollar year thanks to It, which has made $683 million worldwide, and Annabelle: Creation, which has scared up $305 million.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, Dauberman indicated that his take on Are You Afraid of the Dark? would remain true to the spirit of the original series, which actually made its debut on Canada's YTV in 1990 before it was picked up by Nickelodeon.

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, here's a tale that's sure to peak the interest of 90s kids.
