David Dastmalchian, Marin Ireland, Vivien Lyra Blair and Madison Hu join Chris Messina and Sophie Thatcher in The Boogeyman. The film has entered production in New Orleans and will debut in 2023 on Hulu in the U.S., on Star+ in Latin America, and on Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.

The plot is described as:

The film from director Rob Savage follows a 16-year-old and her younger sister, still reeling from the death of their mother, as they’re targeted by a supernatural boogeyman, after their psychologist father has an encounter with a desperate patient in their house.

Sounds to me as if it’s been a bit altered compared to the story King wrote in 1973 but I guess we’ll see next year…
