A Quiet Place writers to adapt Stephen King's The Boogeyman
The film will trace the story of a man describing the murders of his three young children
Following the massive success of the recent adaptation of Stephen King's It, which became the highest grossing horror film of all time, 20th Century Fox has roped in A Quiet Place's screenwriters Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, to write the script for a horror film based on the veteran writer's short story, The Boogeyman.
The film, co-produced by Stranger Things' production house 21 Laps Entertainment, will trace the story of a man describing the murders of his three young children--who died after crying "Boogeyman"--to a psychiatrist. Though the story has been remade as a short film several times, this will be its first feature film adaptation. This marks the sixth collaboration of the writer duo.
Incidentally, Paramount is developing a sequel to A Quiet Place, which grossed $330 million worldwide on a $17 million budget.
