Paramount Pictures will put Are You Afraid of the Dark? on the big screen in 2019.
The studio announced that film based on the popular 90s Nickelodeon series will be released October 11, 2019. It co-writer Gary Dauberman will write and direct the film.
Are You Afraid of the Dark? aired from 1990-2000 and centered around a group of teens known as The Midnight Society. The group of friends would get together around a bonfire and tell scary tales hoping that the tale would be scary enough to be initiated into the Midnight Society. Actors such as Elisha Cuthbert, Jay Baruchel, Mia Kirshner, Hayden Christensen, Neve Campbell and Ryan Gosling have appeared on the show during its seven season run.
No word yet on which direction the studios will take the film, whether it be geared toward teens or adults. My guess is that since the age group that watched the original series would now be around their mid to late 20’s and 30’s plus the addition of It co-writer Dauberman, I would expect the film to be a PG-13 or R. At least I’m hoping for an R rating.
