Rob Savage made a name for himself with the 2020 Shudder Original film Host. Now, he’s adapting Stephen King’s short story The Boogeyman for Hulu, according to Deadline.


Mark Heyman (Black Swan) has been writing the newest draft of the script originally penned by Scott Beck,  Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place), and Akela Cooper (Malignant).


In 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 original short story was written in 1973 and was published as part of Stephen King’s Night Shift collection in 1978. 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen are producing the film.
