TV series scribe Erica Rothschild is onboard to pen the screenplay of 20th Century Fox's "The Rotten School."
Working her way to the big screen, TV series writer Erica Rothschild has been assigned to pen the script for "The Rotten School", 20th Century Fox's big screen adaptation of R.L. Stine's multi-novel juvenile fiction series.
The original follows the zany boarding school adventures of class punk Bernie Bridges as he generates scheme against his teachers and rival students. The first book, "The Big Blueberry Barf-Off!", was released in 2005 under HarperCollins Publishers and Parachute Publishing.
Apart from this film project, Fox reportedly is also joining forces with Stine to adapt his best-selling kids horror series "Goosebumps." Although both "School" and "Goosebumps" are aimed at the same audience, the former actually contains more pranks and less scares than the latter one.
