First look at Jack Black in Goosebumps

First look at Jack Black in Goosebumps

The first pics of Jack Black in in the adaptation of R.L’s Stine’s “Goosebumps” were in this week’s EW (via Bloody Disgusting).

Black plays the author himself, who wasn’t a character in the “Goosebumps” books.

The funnyman tells the outlet he was attracted to the project because it was time he did something for the kids.

“This is just the one that seemed like the most fun. I’m looking for projects that compliment each other. I mean, I’m doing different things at the same time. I’m doing a little independent film with my friend Mike White producing called Day Train and that’s going to be a much different, like, sort of along the lines of Bernie where its darker and hard, R-rating. So I felt like I could do one that was more geared towards kids and have some fun in that way where it’s still got some dark elements but its definitely lighter fare. It’s good to just mix it up so you don’t get stuck in a rut.”

“Goosebumps” opens August 7th, 2015.
