A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, who worked with John Krasinski on the recent hit horror screenplay, are in the process of adapting Stephen King’s novel The Boogeyman for the silver screen, Variety reports.

The Boogeyman is a short story written by King in 1973 – child murders play a significant role in the plot, as does the office of a psychotherapist, and lots of people screaming out “boogeyman!”

There’s a lot of King being adapted right now: Hulu is currently developing a Castle Rock series, and film and TV versions of The TommyknockersIn the Tall Grass, and The Bone Church are also under way.
