RL Stine: "A new 'Fear Street' movie is about to go into production for Netflix"

The next Fear Street movie on Netflix will be the first to be based on a genuine R.L. Stine novel, and now precisely which book has been revealed by the iconic horror author.

The Goosebumps writer recently took to social media to write, “I can finally announce that a new Fear Street movie is about to go into production for Netflix. It’s based on my Fear Street book, The Prom Queen.”

The Fear Street movies were released each Friday for three weeks back in July 2021. Fear Street 1994Fear Street 1978 and Fear Street 1666 see Deena Johnson and Samantha Fraser try to take down an evil force in a different era.

The likes of Kiana Madeira, Olivia Scott Welch, Gillian Jacobs, Sadie Sink and Maya Hawke were all featured.

Netflix Head of Film, Scott Stuber, previously told Collider (via Games Radar) that Fear Street 4 would be more standalone than the first three films.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of books,” Stuber said. “There’s one standalone that we’re working on right now that we’re once again trying to get the script right, but I like it very much, and so does the team.”

He added, “So I feel like if we can get that script right, there would be a great kind of extension of that franchise.”
