A Film Adaptation Of THE BOOGEYMAN From Stephen King Is Coming From Host Director Rob Savage
Rob Savage has seen much-deserved respect and projects since his film Host premiered on Shudder. He recently secured a three-picture deal with Blumhouse that brought us the film Dashcam. Now, it’s being reported that Savage will be bringing Stephen King‘s short story The Boogeyman to life with a film adaptation.
The film’s logline is as follows: “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.” A tragic familial death? Beleaguered adolescents? An enigmatic, generally evil “presence”
Savage will be helming the film from a script written by Mark Heyman that will be based on the original drafts from Scott Beck. Bryan Woods and Akela Cooper. The film was originally slated to come from Fox but now has made its way to the popular streamer Hulu.
I am a sucker for a King adaptation and I was absolutely blown away at the uniqueness of Host. If a pandemic cannot stop Savage from putting out a stellar film, then I have no doubt that he is the director for the job to bring another story from the mind of King to life.
