No, we are not talking about the 1980 Ulli Lommel flick, the awful 2005 flick (or its senseless sequels, though the third wasn’t too bad), or even the failed worm-eating WWE grappler. What we have here could be the most terrifying iteration of the mythical character yet, if only because it’s on a kids’ channel.
According to Deadline, Nickelodeon Original Films has acquired the supernatural family pitch Boogeymen from writer John Sullivan. Described as a Men in Black-style adventure (UGH!) involving a fearful kid who partners up with the Boogeyman to investigate paranormal activity (double UGH!), the film has Howard Deutch (Pretty In Pink) attached to direct.
Look for more on this one unfortunately soon. I just feel dirty.
