Sadie Sink Joins R.L. Stine’s ‘Fear Street’ Trilogy | Film News
Stranger Things star Sadie Sink is joining the Fear Street Trilogy, based on the novels by R.L. Stine, with the same name. The series first hit shelves back in 1989. It featured a group teenagers who dealt with supernatural, and often violent, threats to their small town of Shadyside.
Sink first broke through with the second season of Stranger Things. Her character Max, and Max’s brother Billy (played by Dacre Montgomery) shook up the town of Hawkins and its main cast of characters, which includes Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard and Winona Ryder. The new season drops this July.
Previously announced, the cast includes Olivia Welch (Modern Family, Agent Carter), Kiana Madeira (Really Me, Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars), Ashley Zukerman (Masters of Sex, Fear the Walking Dead), Fred Hechinger, Julie Rehwald and Jeremy Ford.
The adaptation of Stine’s popular horror series was first announced back in 2015 and comes in the wake of other recent adaptations of Stine’s works including 2015’s Goosebumps and its 2018 sequel Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, both starring Jack Black as the writer himself.
The Fear Street trilogy cast will follow a script penned by screenwriter Kyle Killen whose other writing credits include The Beaver and the forthcoming Halo TV series.
