Author R.L. Stine has confirmed that a fourth film based on his “Fear Street” line of books is in the works at streaming giant Netflix.
In a posting on Twitter on Saturday, Stine shared the news saying: “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.’ Good news!”.
Previously, Netflix adapted three stories from the book series into a full trilogy of films which were released over three back-to-back weeks on the streamer in July 2021.
Leigh Janiak helmed the films which all received very positive reviews. The new film will feature a new cast of characters and is based on the 1992 novel whose synopsis reads as follows:
“A spring night… soft moonlight… five beautiful Prom Queen candidates… dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom – these should be the ingredients for romance. But stir in one brutal murder – then another, and another – and the recipe quickly turns to horror.
Lizzie McVay realizes that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one – and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over – for good?”
No word as to when the film might begin shooting as yet let alone a release date.
