The three-book children’s series that’s sold more than 7 million copies worldwide began with 1981?s Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, continuing with More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (1984) and Scary Stories 3: More Tales To Chill Your Bones (1991).

Saw’s Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton were previously announced to helm the project before producers shifted gears. August is going back to the source material for his take and a director will be the next piece to fall into place.
