Screen Gems’ Slender Man will begin filming this Summer around fair city, which is being directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard and The Losers) from a script by David Birke and Mike Scannell. The film stars Joey King (Wish Upon) Annalise Basso (Oculus), Talitha Bateman (Annabelle: Creation), Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair and Alex Fitzalan.
Slender Man is depicted as a lanky, faceless figure in a black suit and originated as an internet meme. It grew to fame following the reports that violent acts were being committed in his name, including a much publicized story of two 12-year-old girls in Wisconsin who lured a friend into the woods and nearly stabbed her to death.
For those of you who live in the area, local filming will run from June 19 to July 28.
Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and William Sherak will produce the feature under their Mythology Entertainment banner, which originally held the rights to Slender Man across all platforms, including motion picture.
Slender Man will find you on May 18, 2018.
