We’ve known for a little while that Sony Pictures had plans for a sequel to 2015’s Goosebumps, and now comes word on who’ll direct the follow-up.

As per Tracking Board, The Duff’s Ari Sandel has signed on to helm Goosebumps 2. Previously, there were reports that Sony had two scripts being worked on; one which would bring back Jack Black as R.L. Stine, one which wouldn’t see Black returning to the fold.

Plot-wise, some rumblings had the sequel pegged to focus on the much-loved HorrorLand. It’s also believed that Sony is looking to work on a lesser budget this time out.

At this stage, Goosebumps 2 is booked in for a September 21st, 2018 release.
