Netflix is adapting the first of Joe Ballarini‘s three-book series A Babysitter’s Guide To Monster Hunting for a monster-filled family feature, Deadline reports, with the possibility of a trilogy.


Rachel Talalay (Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, Tank Girl) is in the director’s for the film whose script will be written by Ballarini himself.


“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 will be producing along with Ivan Reitman and Amie Karp, with Naia Cucukov of Walden Media, Tom Pollock, and Ilona Herzberg executive producing.
