As we learned last year, IT writer Gary Dauberman has been tasked with penning Are You Afraid of the Dark? for Paramount Players, a feature film adaptation of Nickelodeon's hit ’90s TV series.

Paramount Pictures dated the film for Friday 11th October 2019 last December, and this week at CinemaCon, they reminded of that date while sharing an (early) official logo for the film! You can see the official logo for the movie above, courtesy of Twitter /@joshHsmith1991 above!

“The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. We’re going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves,” Dauberman recently told THR.

Dauberman will produce with Matt Kaplan. Paramount is producing the film conjunction with Nickelodeon Movies.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? was created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel and ran as an anthology series on Nickelodeon between 1992 and 1996. It was set around a group of teenagers who called themselves the Midnight Society and would meet weekly at a secret location in the woods to tell a scary story around a campfire. Subjects ranged from abandoned houses and vampires to scary clowns and witches. The show was revived in 1999 for two more seasons with new writers and showrunners. Tia and Tamera Mowry, Will Friedle, Neve Campbell, Hayden Christensen, Jay Baruchel, Tatyana Ali, Melissa Joan Hart, Jewel Staite, and two-time Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling are just a few of the household names that lent their acting skills to the anthology.
