Sony Pictures has set “Goosebumps,” starring Jack Black, for a March 23, 2016 release in the U.S. — the first title to land on that Easter weekend date.

The film, based on the series of kids’ books by R.L. Stine, is directed by Rob Letterman and produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner. Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment, which published the books, is also producing.

Dylan Minnette is the co-lead opposite Black. Story follows Minnette’s character, who moves from New York City to the small town of Greendale, Maryland and discovers that secretive neighbor is veteran young adult horror author R.L. Stine (Black). When all the many demons of Stine’s mind are set free by a demonic ventriloquist’s dummy, it’s up to Minnette’s character and Stine’s niece Hannah to deal with all the evil.
