Screenwriter for ‘IT’ is Set to Write The Script For ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’ Movie

An adaptation of the of the classic Nickelodeon show Are You Afraid of the Dark is in the works, and screen writer Gary Dauberman, who wrote IT is set to write the script. The movie is being produced by Mike Kaplan.

Paramount players, which is a new division at Paramount Pictures, focuses on producing filmed content that’s aimed at younger viewers. Paramount Players draws its resources from Viacom flagship brands, such as Nickelodeon, which is now producing a Dora the Explorer movie through Paramount Players.

Are You Afraid of The Dark is an adaptation of the Nickelodeon classic created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel. The 1990s anthology series followed a group of kids who called themselves the Midnight Society. The kids would tell various scary stories, some based on fairytales and urban legends but with a modern twist.

The show ran from 1992-96, and was later rebooted in 1999 for one season but with new writers and showrunners.

Dauberman is known for being one of three writers credited on It, which was a major hit when I debuted in theaters back in September, and he also set to return for the sequel. Dauberman has also recently wrote Annabelle: Creation and is now set to write The Nun,  which, is a part of  The Conjuring universe.
