The Screenwriter Who Brought Pennywise to Life Is Working on an ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Movie

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, we call this upcoming feature film from the dark mind of It co-scribe Gary Dauberman: Are You Afraid of the Dark? *Throws sand into campfire*

Today, Paramount announced Dauberman will pen a movie version of the highly popular Nickelodeon show that induced recurring nightmares throughout the ’90s. In the series, a group of scary-story-loving teens who call themselves the Midnight Society gather around a campfire each week to swap twisted fairy tales and dark urban legends. Are You Afraid of the Dark? aired from 1992 to 1996 and returned for one season in 1999, and on one occasion was responsible for making us leave a sleepover early.

Dauberman, who adapted Stephen King’s terrifying novel It alongside Cary Fukunaga and Chase Palmer, will revamp the frightening anthology series for Paramount’s new imprint, Paramount Players. The new company aims to recycle Viacom’s TV and film properties to produce content for a younger audience.

It’s perfectly normal for a grown-ass woman to sleep with the lights on, thank you very much.
