“Goosebumps” is now being made into a movie and teens can tryout to be in it!
Have you ever wanted to be in a horror move, well, not too scary of a horror movie, here is your chance because the classic short story series ‘Goosebumps” will be holding movie tryouts for speaking roles and extras.
The movie has issued a casting call for teens 16+ to be featured in the film and also there is a speaking part available for a boy. Those interested in trying out for the movie will have to make it to the Atlanta open call coming up this weekend.
Jack Black will star as the king of all that is creepy. He will reprise the role of R.L. Stine, the author whose horror filled books have a way of bringing their characters to life. Back in the 90’s “Goosebumps” was a popular kid / teen television series that ran on Saturday mornings…. just after the cartoons if memory serves me right. Each episode of the show featured different characters and a different creepy story ripped from the pages of R.. L. Stine’s teen novels.
Sony Pictures is resurrecting the series which will probably be back funnier (thanks to Jack Black) and creepier (thanks to better CGI and effects) than ever! This was an awesome show and I am so happy that it is coming back, certainly about time. Back in the day, “Goosebumps” ran for 4 years and produced around 70 episodes. Some of the episodes were comical, some creepy and some actually scared their target audience on those Saturday mornings.
If you are too young to actually remember what “Goosebumps” was all about, you can check out this video clip of the best “Goosebumps” moments for some real nostalgia:
Sony Pictures will begin production of the feature film this coming April. At the moment the movie is only looking to cast teens for future roles, after production begins. Once the cameras do start rolling, hopefully we will see more casting calls for extras of all ages. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play a zombie in such a classic.
The movie is about a kid, or more so, a young man who happens to move in next door to Jack Black who is playing the author. We all know that the teen should not snoop and snooping never led to anything good but of course he will and learn that the monsters in his neighbors book may not be what they seem as the stories do have a way of coming to life.
Filming begins April 2014 and most of the production will be taking place in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
The film is casting the speaking role of Dwayne – a naturally funny young man whose size is that of a football star.
At the moment they are not going to be considering anyone who is not at least 16 years of age. They want to cast extras who are 16 or older yet look younger.
Please read all the information carefully, they have different call times for general extras and those who would like to tryout for the speaking role of Dwayne.
All teens MUST BE LEGALLY 16 years old or older to play younger – NO exceptions.
