Dylan Minnette and Odeya Rush also star with Rob Letterman directing.
Story is loosely based on R.L. Stine's book series and follows Minnette's character, who moves from New York City to the small town of Greendale, Maryland, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be veteran young adult horror author R.L. Stine (Black). When all the many demons of Stine's mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquist's dummy, it's up to Minnette's character and Stine's niece Hannah to put all the evil genies back in the bottle.
Darren Lemke and Mike White wrote the script. Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz will produce.
Lee can currently be seen on ABC's "Trophy Wife." He is repped by Principato-Young, ICM Partners and Myman, Greenspan.
