McG has signed on to produce and possibly direct an adaptation of School of Fear, based on the children's novel series by Gitty Danveshari.

The story follows four young children who all suffer from different phobias. They are sent to a secretive school that will help them overcome their fears, if they can survive the treacherous final test. Producer Graham King first acquired the rights in 2007, before the first book was published. The rights expired, with Red Crown Productions taking the project to McG's Wonderland company. McG is not attached to direct, although he will have the first option.

Daniel Mackey is writing the adapted screenplay. He previously wrote for the web series Aim High, which McG produced. Mary Viola and Scott Fischer are producing for Wonderland, with Daniela Taplin Lundberg, Daniel Crown, and Riva Marker producing for Red Crown. No production schedule was given.

    I thought this was a horror movie at first by just clicking on the article. But it sounds interesting, actually.

    As the person who coined the phrase, "McG is a dollar menu name with ten cent skills," I'd be remiss to say anything other than I'll pass.

    The title doesn't sound like something parents would want their kids to see, but hey, if a parent can take a kid to see Twilight, then let's ignore logic and responsibility all together
