According to Omega Underground, the upcoming Goosebumps sequel has a brand new title, and that title is Goosebumps: Slappy’s Revenge. The outlet continues, stating that the film is set to shoot in Atlanta sometime in the first half of 2018.

From the title, we can infer that Slappy — the dummy from the novel Night of the Living Dummy who served as the main villain and mastermind of the first film — will be back for this sequel to…you know…get revenge.

However, despite us knowing the title and rough shoot date, there’s still a whole lot we don’t know. From what we heard, Sony worked on multiple versions of the script — one with Jack Black’s character and one without. As of this writing, it’s still unknown whether or not they’ll be going forward with or without him.

The studio had originally hoped to get this film out by late 2018, but based on this late shooting date, it seems unlikely that it won’t get pushed back to 2019.

Goosebumps: Slappy’s Revenge is set to be helmed by The DUFF director Ari Sendel, with writer Rob Lieber on board to write one of the drafts of the scripts (though it’s not clear which draft he penned).

    Maybe they mean Slappy Squirrel from Animaniacs.

    I guess it would be a new cast with Jack Black reprising his role as R.L. Stein. The “kids” from the first film are well into their twenties by now and it wouldn’t have the same affect.

    Also, what else is there for the Slappy doll to do?

    Jack Black as the voice of Slappy was the best part of the first. RL could go.
