Stephen King’s “The Boogeyman” Lands Director For Hulu/Star Film

20th Century Studios and Hulu are moving forward with a film adaptation of “The Boogeyman” based on Stephen King’s horror short story.  The two-hour movie will be directed by Rob Savage (Host and Dashcam).

Mark Heyman (Black Swan) has been penning the scripts from the original drafts by Scott Beck & Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place) and Akela Cooper (Malignant).

Casting will begin shortly and production is set to begin sometime this winter or spring in New Orleans.

Stephen King’s The Boogeyman was first published in 1973 and follows the story of a man recalling the recent events of his life to his psychiatrist Dr. Harper after the death of many children, who were killed by a creature lurking in the closet. Below is the logline for the film: still reeling from the tragic death of their mother, a teenage girl and her little brother find themselves plagued by a sadistic presence in their house and struggle to get their grieving father to pay attention before it’s too late.

The Boogeyman is a production by 21 Laps. It will be produced by Shawn Levy, Dan Levin, and Dan Cohen, with Beck and Woods serving as executive producers.
