FOX to Adapt Stephen King's BOOGEYMAN For the Big Screen With A QUIET PLACE Writers
The project has been set up with 21 Laps' Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen. Beck and Woods will be executive producers on "The Boogeyman" with Madhouse Entertainment's Robyn Meisinger, Adam Kolbrenner, and Ryan Cunningham. JR Young will oversee for the studio.
"The Boogeyman," takes place in a psychiatrist's office where a man describes the murders of his three young children - with all three dying after crying "Boogeyman." The story has been made into a short film several times.
Beck and Woods teamed on the screenplay for "A Quite Place" with director John Krasinski. The writers grew up together in Iowa, and began working on "A Quiet Place" five years ago.
"The Boogeyman" was first published in THE MARCH 1973 issue of the magazine Cavalier, and later collected in King's 1978 collection Night Shift.
