Guillermo del Toro is producing a movie that will be based on Alvin Schwartz‘s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series of books.
Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe) is set to direct the adaptation.
Collider is reporting that “Zoe Colletti will play Stella Michaels, a young girl still haunted by her mother’s disappearance on Halloween night — an incident that she suspects her father knows more about than he lets on. Years later, Stella and her friends are involved in a Halloween prank gone wrong. But are they really at fault, or was it the work of a vengeful spirit — a female ghost who uses her scary stories to come after the teens when they begin to investigate the disappearance of several children?”
They have also found out that “Those who have read the script say that the film will feature the human scarecrow from “Harold” and the girl who has spiders crawl out of her face in “The Red Spot,” both of which appeared in Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones.”
