The last big screen adaptation of Dungeons and Dragons didn’t turn out so great — in fact, it was pretty terrible. So it shouldn’t take much to make a better Dungeons and Dragons movie, but thankfully Warner Bros. doesn’t appear to be interested in just delivering the bare minimum, as they’ve officially tapped Goosebumps director Rob Letterman to helm a new adaptation of the prolific table top RPG.

Although Goosebumps didn’t do crazy-amazing business at the box office, the 2015 film based on R.L. Stine’s prolific youth horror franchise did well enough — more importantly, the surprisingly delightful adaptation appealed to fans of all ages with a style and tone reminiscent of ’80s family horror flicks. If you were a fan of Goosebumps, then you’re surely a fan of today’s news, as Sony is moving ahead on a sequel with original director Rob Letterman and screenwriter Darren Lemke in talks to return.

You know what would be a vast improvement over that other Dungeons and Dragons movie that you probably (rightfully) forgot? The immediate response is “anything,” of course, but also: fun. You know what was fun? Last year’s Goosebumps movie, which managed to take the vast possibilities of R.L. Stine’s books and transform them into an entertaining movie for fans both old and new (abundance of CGI notwithstanding). It would appear that Warner Bros. and Hasbro agree, as the studios are reportedly eyeing Goosebumps director Rob Letterman to take on their risky Dungeons and Dragons project.
