Furst Films Adapting The Sitter


Based on the book by R.L. Stine

Furst Films has bought the rights to adapt the R.L. Stine book The Sitter into a feature length film, according to a report on Variety.

Siblings Sean Furst and Bryan Furst will produce along with longtime Stine collaborators Yvonne Bernard and Beth Hawk. Stine — best known for penning the Goosebumps series — will exec produce along with Jane Stine and Ann Blanchard.

The Sitter focuses on a young woman who takes a summer job as a nanny to a 4-year-old who hasn’t spoken for months and is seemingly haunted by something too horrible for words.

The Fursts are the producers behind the Spierig brothers flick Daybreakers, which opens this Friday from Lionsgate.
