20th Century and Hulu are producing a new two-hour film based on the Stephen King short story, The Boogeyman.

What’s Happening:

  • Deadline reports that production on The Boogeyman will occur this winter into spring in New Orleans. Prep and casting will begin shortly.
  • Rob Savage (Host and Dashcam) will direct the film, while Mark Heyman (Black Swan) will write the script based on original drafts from Scott Beck, Bryan Woods and Akela Cooper.
  • Stephen King’s The Boogeyman was first published in 1978 as part of The Night Shift collection of short stories for magazines. It was collected in a bestselling anthology and published the year after The Shining became a huge bestseller for the author.
  • This will be the tenth short story in the 20-story collection to be turned either into a feature film or TV movie. Other adaptations include Children of the Corn, Maximum Overdrive, The Mangler and Sometimes They Come Back.
