Though the plot is being kept under wraps, it’s been confirmed that Dan and Kevin Hageman will also be returning to pen the script based on a story idea from producer Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), who produced the predecessor and also helped craft the story alongside Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (The Collection).

The films are based on a trilogy of children’s horror books first published in 1981 that featured over two dozen horror stories written by Alvin Schwartz and accompanied by chilling illustrations from Stephen Gammell, with the first film adapting “The Big Toe,” “Me Tie Dough-ty Walker!” from the first book and “Harold,” “The Dream” and “The Red Spot” from the third novel.

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time — stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark starred Zoe Colletti (Annie), Austin Abrams (Brad’s Status, Tragedy Girls), Gabriel Rush (Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Michael Garza (Wayward Pines, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1), Austin Zajur (Fist Fight, Kidding), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Gil Bellows (PatriotJett) and Lorraine Toussaint (Into The BadlandsSelmaOrange Is The New Black) and Natalie Ganzhorn (Make it Pop, Wet Bum).
