Jack Black Talks Goosebumps Film, First Images DebutViewers beware, you're in for a scare. Next summer, the big screen adaptation of Goosebumps will debut featuring Jack Black as the author of the series, R.L. Stine. Entertainment Weekly (via Bloody Disgusting) has debuted the first images of the film which you can check out after the jump.

"I play R.L. Stine, who’s not in any of the books, but he’s an essential character in this movie," Black tells the outlet. "Which is all about when all of his characters come to life. It was kind of a great way to bring out all of the scary beasts and monsters from all of his books in one movie."

He went on to talk about the age-appropriate scares of the book translating to the big screen.

"Kids like scary movies, but you can’t take them to what are the big scary movies now where Satan comes out and bites your genitals off. Those movies can actually leave you mentally scared; that’s not for kids. But kids still like to get a little thrill and a little danger, so you need projects like this."

In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling "Goosebumps" series.

It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange…he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it's suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.

Directed by Rob Letterman, Goosebumps is set to hit theaters on August 7, 2015.
