‘Fear Street’ to Begin Filming in March with Growing Cast

Straight from Deadline, the first installment to the 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books series is set to begin production this month and has added Benjamin Flores, Jr. to the cast.

Fear Street is being planned as trilogy of films, the first of which is to be directed by Leigh Janiak who will also helm the third film in the series, while Alex Ross Perry will take on the second entry.

Flores, Jr. joins Kiana Madeira and Olivia Welch, both of whom were previously announced as the leads. He is said to play the character Josh, described as a bit of a loner, smart, kind and resourceful, who prefers internet chat rooms to high school and is obsessed with conspiracy theories.

With production slated to begin in Atlanta, Jason Young will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
