Writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have been hired to write a Monster High film based off of the new Mattel line of books, webisodes, animation, and toys. THR reports that the new Mattel property is set in a high school for monsters (hence the name) and “features the spawn of famous monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolfman undergoing the trials and tribulations of high school.”
The writing duo, who are best known for being the minds behind Smallville, will be adapting the property into a monster-movie-musical which is being described as part Beetlejuice and part The Addams Family. There is currently no director attached to Monster High, but music composer Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) will be producing the film and will also hopefully help contribute some songs to the film when the time comes. Gough and Millar recent credits include writing the script for the upcoming sci-fi action-adventure film I Am Number 4, and they are also currently writing a reboot of Charlie’s Angels for ABC.
