Netflix is turning Joe Ballarini’s three-book series A Babysitter’s Guide To Monster Hunting into a family film, Deadline reports today, with Rachel Talalay (Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, Tank Girl) set to direct. Ballarini himself will be writing the adaptation.
The movie will adapt the first book in the series.
“The book is about an apathetic babysitter who doesn’t like kids very much and is horrified to discover that the child she is sitting for has been stolen by monsters. It’s her responsibility along, with a secret society of baby sitters who do battle against the creatures of the night, to save the child and the world from things that go bump in the night.”
Walden Media and Montecito Pictures Company are producing.
Ivan Reitman and Amie Karp will produce, with Naia Cucukov of Walden Media, Tom Pollock, and Ilona Herzberg executive producing.
