Opening Friday, Goosebumps centers on Zach (Dylan Minnette), a teenager who moves to Greendale, Maryland with his mother (Amy Ryan). Initially reluctant with the change of scenery, Zach befriends inquisitive neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush), and their immediate bond is somewhat impeded by Hannah’s reclusive father, aka author R.L. Stine (Jack Black).
When Zach unwittingly unleashes Stine’s fictional creations into Greendale, it’s up to him and his newfound friends (Ryan Lee also stars as Zach’s new buddy Champ) to save the day.
“I auditioned (for Goosebumps) a few times,” said Rush, who starred last year in The Giver. “I read with a lot of different boys for Zach and then I read with Dylan and I read with Jack and it was kind of immediate then. I realized in the audition process that I really loved the script and I loved the way Rob Letterman directs. I could really do this for the next for months and I would really enjoy working with these people.”
