Another day, another Stephen King adaptation. There’s no doubt that many of the stories the dude wrote are well-fitted for the big screen, but it’s hard not to feel overly-inundated with all these different King properties getting announced and released every other week. However, this latest piece of news is something that actually may inspire even the most cynical and jaded of King viewers.
According to a new report states that Scott Beck & Bryan Woods, the duo behind the script for this year’s surprise horror hit A Quiet Place, will be taking on adapting the short story “The Boogeyman” into a feature film.
Interestingly enough, this short is no stranger to the silver screen — well, sort of. One of my favorite bits of trivia is that King lets film students have non-exclusive, non-commercial rights to his stories, allowing them to work with A-level material where they otherwise may not get it. As a result, “The Boogeyman” has been adapted seven times.
Given how well received A Quiet Place was, we’re very much looking forward to seeing how this turns out, as it seems like the perfect fit for the two. We’ll also be keeping an eye on their upcoming film Haunt, which Beck wrote and Woods directed. From that, we’ll be able to see just how great their skills are.
