Now however, the movie has officially been greenlighted, and is moving forward at a pretty rapid pace. The Slappy Halloween subtitle might indicate that Jack Black will be back, at least to voice the famous ventriloquist dummy character, and we’ll let you know if and when we get confirmation of that happening. In the meantime, Jeremy Ray Taylor, who recently appeared in IT, is on board for Goosebumps 2. He’ll join three other child actors, Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, andCaleel Harris. More recently, the aforementioned comedic names Chris Parnell, Ken Jeong and Wendi McLendon-Covey were also announced.
