'It' Writer Tackling 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' Movie for Paramount

Are You Afraid of the Dark

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Are You Afraid of the Dark? is being made into a movie, and Paramount Players, a division of the movie studio Paramount Pictures, has hired It writer Gary Dauberman to write the script and produce the film. And like all good '90s childhood nostalgia, it must be adapted into a film. The show centered on a (fictional) group called "The Midnight Society", who told spooky stories around a campfire. The creepy clowns of Are You Afraid of the Dark are probably a huge part of what ignited everyone's clown fears, too, so it's ideal that one of It " s writers will bring the spooky stories of the '90s to the big screen.

Are You Afraid of the Dark was a "90s kid staple".

Here's hoping the movie is even half as creepy as this iconic intro.

Swiss HSBC settles French tax fraud dispute
HSBC's Swiss private bank said it is ending a long-running French investigation over offshore accounts by paying a fine. It also said that two former directors of HSBC's Swiss private bank remained subject to possible legal action.

Paramount Players, overseen by former Awesomeness founder Brian Tobbins, is developing feature projects based on Paramount properties found on labels such as Nick, MTV and Comedy Central. We're ready to see it, though ― just, you know, with the lights on. Considering that a Dora the Explorer movie is already in the works from the distributor, it seems like the possibilities are endless for Nickelodeon shows' movie adaptations.

Only '90s kids will remember Are You Afraid of the Dark?

The show was initially a Canadian series that got picked up by Nick and aired as part of its Saturday night block.
