'A Quiet Place' Writers Are Adapting Stephen King's 'The Boogeyman'
Published Jun 26, 2018Scott Beck and Bryan Woods achieved something special with A Quiet Place, managing to craft a thrill-heavy horror film with very little dialogue (just don't ask why John Krasinski didn't build his house by the waterfall). Up next, they've been tapped to adapt a Stephen King story.
The Boogeyman was originally published as a short story in 1973 as part of King's Night Shift collection. The story was adapted as a short film (the poster of which — complete with Boogyman misspelling — is available above).
Now, Woods and Beck will turn it into a feature-length film. Of the announcement, the duo said, "Ever since we were children, our nightmares have been fueled by the 'King' of Horror… so we are absolutely thrilled and hono8red to be adapting Stephen King's The Boogeyman."
Stay tuned for more details on the film as they become available.
