ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? Film Gets STEPHEN KING'S IT Screenwriter

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? Film Gets STEPHEN KING'S IT Screenwriter

Paramount Players, a new division at Paramount Pictures led by Awesomeness founder Brian Robbins, is developing what will be an adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon 90s show Are You Afraid of the Dark?

The Hollywood Reporter not only broke the news that the horror anthology for the pre-teen set was getting the greenlight, but that it would also be penned by a writer that is no stranger to horror in the form of It and Annabelle: Creation scribe Gary Dauberman. And like all good '90s childhood nostalgia, it must be adapted into a film.

Apart from Dauberman, no additional producers, cast, or staff have been announced regarding the Are You Afraid of the Dark? adaptation. While Clarissa Explains It All awakened everyone's desires to fill their closets with all-neon clothing, Are You Afraid of the Dark awakened everyone's deep-seated fears of, well, everything really. "I hope the Midnight Society approves". Are You Afraid of the Dark? touched on all the basics ― dolls, clowns, what have you ― and gave, um, certain writers nightmares that they recall to this day...

For instance, "The Tale Of The Ghastly Grinner" practically introduced the world to Pennywise's equally creepy joker cousin, and seeing him on the big screen might just force everyone to call their parents and ask to sleep in their beds for the night. Are You Afraid of the Dark aired from 1992-1996, returning for one season in 1999, and on one occasion was responsible for making us leave a sleepover early.
