Netflix Takes ‘Fear Street’ Films

Fox was set to release all three upcoming Fear Street films next summer, based on the popular horror book series from R.L. Stine, but Disney’s acquisition of the company put those plans on hold. Instead, Netflix has now acquired the films, all three of which were directed by Leigh Janiak (Scream: The TV Series), and will release one per month next summer during what it is calling “The Summer of Fear.”
