Paramount Players (a new division at Paramount Pictures) is moving forward with a film based on the Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark?, according to Variety. The script will be written by IT screenwriter Gary Dauberman. Matt Kaplan will produce the film.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a Canadian horror anthology series that ran on Nickelodeon from 1992-1996. The show was created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel. Are You Afraid of the Dark? premiered on Canadian television’s YTV with “The Tale of the Twisted Claw” on Halloween 1990. The series aired in Canada until June 11, 2000. It premiered on Nickelodeon’s SNICK on August 15, 1992 and aired until April 20, 1996. Are You Afraid of the Dark? was revived as a series with new cast and crew in 1999 on SNICK and aired until 2000. Daniel DeSanto who played Tucker on the original series appeared in teh revival and Ross Hull who played Gary appeared on the series finale.

Both series featured a group of teenagers who called themselves “The Midnight Society.” The group would gather around a campfire at the beginning of each episode and one of the teens would say, “Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story [name of episode].” Then they’d toss “midnight dust” on the campfire. The audience would then see the story unfold. The stories were all scary, from abandoned houses to vampires to witches.

Dauberman was one of the three screenwriters on IT which was a huge hit this fall. A sequel is in the works. He also wrote Annabelle: Creation and is currently writing The Nun in The Conjuring universe.
