MTV is Adapting R.L. Stine’s Internet Dating Thriller Into TV Mini-Series

eyecandyMTV is working on a television series based on R.L. Stine‘s best-selling online thriller about online dating Eye Candy.

According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Victoria Justice will star in the flick and Twilight director Catherine Jardwicke will direct the adaptation. IMDB reveals that  is heading up production for the mini-series.

Here is more about the story from the book’s description:

Lindy Sampson is a twenty-three-year-old New Yorker with a problem: She’s too beautiful. Guys are intimidated by her. Her roommate suggests Internet dating and writes a Personal ad for Lindy, calling her “Eye Candy.” The responses pour in. Suddenly, Lindy is dating four guys at once–and having the time of her life. Until she gets a terrifying note that warns: “Don’t say no, Lindy. Keep going out with me. I’ll mess you up if you ever say no.”
