"Saw" Scribes Adapting ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ for CBS Films
By: Angie Han
If you grew up in the ’80s or ’90s, you probably spent at least a little bit of your childhood being scared silly by Alvin Schwartz‘s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Now a whole new generation of kids will get the opportunity to be spooked by those stories, thanks to CBS Films.
The studio has just picked up the rights to the three-part horror anthology series, with scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston set to write the screenplay. The pair are best known for their work on the Saw series, so they certainly know their way around creepy material. Hit the jump for plot details and more.
Deadline reports that CBS Films outbid its competitors to acquire Melton and Dunston’s pitch. Their script will incorporate several short stories from the books into a larger plot about a group of young outcasts who must save their town when nightmares start to become real.
