Host director Rob Savage is set to bring Stephen King’s short story The Boogeyman to the screen in a new adaptation.
The short story written by Stephen King The bogeyman heads for the screen, with the news that 20e Century Studios is backing an adaptation of it for the Hulu streaming service. Host and dash cam director Rob Savage will tackle the film.
It’s been in development quite a bit while this one, since the days when Fox was Fox, rather than a Disney asset. Previous writers on the project have included Bryan Woods, Scott Beck, and Akela Cooper. Mark Heyman wrote the shootin’ version of the screenplay.
Furthermore, we learn that Sophie Thatcher, of yellow jackets fame and Chris Messina will take on the lead roles in the film. Filming is due to start on The bogeyman in March, and that suggests a possible release before the end of the year.
More on this one as we hear it, of course. Expect it to go, of all places, to Disney+ in the UK.
