The team behind the project includes James Wan who is producing with Michael Clear and Jason Cloth. The story has been adapted for the screen by Osgood Perkins who also will direct.
Talking about the film, Wan said:
“Stephen King is the godfather of the horror genre. He had a huge influence on me as a child and throughout my career, and it’s always been a dream to help bring one of his stories to life. The Monkey is a personal favorite, with its simple, iconic and incredibly marketable conceit. And I can’t imagine anyone better than a visionary and lifelong genre fan like Osgood to bring this to life.”
