R.L. Stine Reveals New 'Fear Street' Movie Will Be Based On His Book 'The Prom Queen'

Seems Like You Got A Little Witch In You

Netflix released a three-part trilogy titled Fear Street in 2021. Now, a new movie is in the works as revealed by R.L. Stine.

Big Things for Stine

R.L. Stine is one of the most famous, if not the most famous, children’s horror fiction writer. He has written over fifty books and has even made two movies, from the Mostly Ghostly series. The most famous movie based on his books is Goosebumps, which starred Jack Black (School of Rock) as R.L Stine and Dylan Minnette (13 Reasons Why) as Zach. The film even got a sequel, which had Black reprising his role. Joining him was Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT) and Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle). Another one of his most famous works is the trilogy on Netflix that was based on his Fear Street book series.

Stranger Things Have Happened on Fear Street

The Fear Street TV series was a big hit for those fans of thriller and horror. It had three parts that were each centered around three periods of time. These time periods were 1994, 1978, and 1666. The show was mainly centered around Deena, played by Kiana Madeira (Perfect Addiction) and Samantha, who was played by Olivia Scott Welch (Panic). Some famous faces from the hit netflix series Stranger Things also made appearances in at least one of the films, these two being Sadie Sink and Maya Hawke. Moreover, Benjamin Flores Jr. (The Haunted Hathaways) played Josh. The logline for the first movie in the 2021 trilogy goes as follows: “After a series of brutal slayings, a teen and her friends take on an evil force that’s plagued their notorious town for centuries.” It definitely keeps audiences on their toes and has a murder mystery-type feel to it.

The Prom Queen Joins The Trilogy

R.L. Stine announced to the world on Twitter with news about the upcoming film. He posted a picture of the book that the movie will be based on from the Fear Street series. The caption was as follows: “Movie News: I can finally announce that a new Fear Street movie is about to go into production for Netflix. It’s based on my Fear Street book, The Prom Queen. Good news!” This was posted at 10:07 AM on January 13th. It currently has almost 400 thousand views, over 9 thousand likes, and over 1300 reposts. Here is a synopsis of the book from Bloody Disgusting: “A spring night…soft moonlight…five beautiful Prom Queen candidates…dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom — these should be the ingredients for romance. But stir in one brutal murder — then another, and another — and the recipe quickly turns to horror. Lizzie McVay realizes that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one — and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over — for good?”

Fear is Coming

It’s safe to say that this film will be just as good as the others before it, as it’s based on an R.L. Stine novel. Moreover, the series was truly captivating, so hopefully the same people will be on the team for the film. Unfortunately, What’s on Netflix reported that the upcoming film is a standalone, so it most likely won’t include the characters from the 2021 Netflix trilogy. With production starting soon, a release can’t be expected until at least late 2024 or early 2025. Stay tuned for more information as it’s released. Hopefully, a cast and trailer will be revealed in the upcoming months.
