Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The legend of the Slender Man character began in 2009 as a creation by Eric Knudsen on the Something Awful forum. Ever since then, the Slender Man took on a life of his own reaching folklore status, and has now become part of pop culture by appearing in video games and independent features. The figure even has a HBO documentary created titled BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN.
According to Variety, the upcoming film SLENDER MAN is looking to bypass Sony as the two sides have had a difference of opinion regarding the size of the movie’s release. Producers see more commercial potential than what the studio is seeing so they feel that the picture deserves a much wider release.
Producers have utilized a clause within their contract that allows them to accept offers that can surpass those of Sony’s. Whether or not the film will still be released by Sony should no one meet their offer, only time will tell.
The film has been pitched to some companies including Amazon and Netflix.
SLENDER MAN is directed by Sylvain White simply titled SLENDER MAN. The script was penned by David Birke and Mike Scannell. The film stars Joey King, Annalise Basso, Talitha Bateman Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair and Alex Fitzalan.
“In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim.”
SLENDER MAN is set to be released on August 24th.
