Goosebumps is a series of horror novels by American author R.L. Stine, which has been adapted into various media formats. The first two entries of the Goosebumps movie franchise were released in 2015 and 2018, respectively. Ever since the release of the second movie, fans of the franchise have been eagerly waiting for news of the third installment. So, when is Goosebumps 3 coming out? Here is a spooky update.
The Delay of Goosebumps 3
After the release of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween back in October 2018, the studio behind the franchise, Sony Pictures, hinted at a potential third movie being in development. However, it has been almost three years since the last movie, and there has been no official news of the third movie except that it is in development. So, what is causing the delay?
Various factors can cause delays in movie production, and Goosebumps 3 is no exception. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the entire entertainment industry, forcing movie productions to be halted or delayed. As expected, the production of Goosebumps 3 was also affected by the pandemic. However, Sony Pictures has not given up on the movie, and news has leaked concerning the progress of the third entry of the franchise.
The Status of Goosebumps 3
In March 2021, it was reported that a script for Goosebumps 3 had been written by writer/director Rob Lieber. Rob Lieber is a writer renowned for his works on The Goldbergs, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Reports suggest that the script for Goosebumps 3 is completed and currently in the revision stage.
The plot details of the third movie have not been revealed yet, but it is expected to be just as spooky and thrilling as previous entries of the franchise. However, the movie is expected to have a new director considering that Rob Letterman, who directed the first two Goosebumps movies, is not involved in the third entry’s production.
The movie’s production will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, but the filming date has not been disclosed. Sony Pictures plans to shoot both Goosebumps 3 and the sequel to another of its franchise, Bad Boys For Life, in the same studio, which could either speed up the production process or cause further delays.
What Can Fans Expect from Goosebumps 3?
The first two entries of the franchise have been highly acclaimed and loved by fans. The third entry of Goosebumps is expected to continue this trend and provide fans with an even more thrilling and spooky experience. With Rob Lieber onboard the project, fans can expect to see a different take on the franchise. Rob Lieber’s works are renowned for their humor and heart, and we can expect to see similar elements in Goosebumps 3.
As expected, the movie will feature various spooky monsters that have been prevalent in the Goosebumps franchise. More information about the plot and whether we will see some of the previous characters like Slappy the Dummy, aka Night of the Living Dummy, or HorrorLand, is still undisclosed.
The Release Date for Goosebumps 3
The exact release date of Goosebumps 3 is still unknown. Sony Pictures has not announced an official release date. However, it was previously speculated that the third entry of the franchise would have a 2021 release date. The COVID-19 pandemic seemed to have hindered that possibility. With the news of the film entering the revision stage, it’s possible we could see the movie released in 2022, but again, nothing is confirmed.
After three years of waiting, fans of the Goosebumps franchise are eager to learn about the release date of the third entry of the franchise. So, when is Goosebumps 3 coming out? Well, nothing has been confirmed yet, but based on leaked news, we can expect the movie to be released in 2022. Regardless, Goosebumps 3 is in the revision stage, and we hope to see it released soon.
