Rob Savage, director of Shudder’s lockdown-filmed hit Host, is staying in the world of horror for his next project, a two-hour film adaptation of Stephen King’s short story The Boogeyman!

According to Deadline, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place) and Akela Cooper (Malignant) wrote the original drafts of the script, which is now being worked on by Mark Heyman (Black Swan). The project comes from 20th Century Studios and Hulu and will likely debut exclusively on Hulu.

The Boogeyman was first published in 1973 and was included in King’s inaugural collection of short stories, 1978’s Night Shift. The adaptation will focus on a teenage girl and her little brother who, in the aftermath of the tragic death of their mother, find themselves plagued by a sadistic presence in their home. Now they must s get their grieving father to pay attention—before it’s too late.
