As theatrical shakes off the pandemic, Disney has moved its Rob Savage directed feature adaptation of Stephen King’s The Boogeyman from Hulu to the big screen. A release is planned for June 2, 2023.

Similar to Paramount’s Smile, and the booming genre box office, a test screening prompted 20th execs to pivot the release to theatrical. 20th had a nice double in this past fall’s Barbarian horror title from New Regency which grossed over $40M stateside off a $10M production cost.

The 21 Laps production was adapted by A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck and Bryan Woods as well as Mark Heyman.

Chris Messina, Sophie Thatcher, Marin Ireland and David Dastmalchian star.

Boogeyman was a story featured in King’s 1978 Night Shift. The feature take centers around a teenager, her younger sister who are mourning their mom’s death. A boogeyman from the beyond enters their lives after their psychologist dad has an encounter with a patient in their home.

THR broke the story.
