That long-gestating Goosebumps feature film, based on the R.L. Stine property, may have found a leading man in Jack Black. The Wrap says the actor is circling the project, which is set to be directed by Rob Letterman.

Letterman, whose credits also include Monsters vs. Aliens, previously directed Black in both Shark Tale and Gulliver's Travels.

Screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander (1408) previously worked on adapting the material before Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia) was brought on board in 2010, followed by Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Killer) last year.

The "Goosebumps" series have sold more than 300 million copies worldwide, second only to the "Harry Potter" series in total sales.

Neal Moritz is producing the film through his Original Film banner with Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
