Sony developing movie based on internet meme ‘Slender Man’
Sony’s said to be working on a horror film about “Slender Man,” the paranormal character who rose to internet fame in recent years. According to The New York Times, Screen Gems, a studio that’s part of Sony Pictures, is currently in talks to develop a movie based on the chilling meme. The report claims this future adaption doesn’t have a complete script yet, but there’s a chance production could start before the end of 2016.
It’ll be interesting to see how the story turns out, especially since Slender Man played a major role during a crime investigation in 2014. Back then, two 12-year-old girls were accused of stabbing a friend as part of a dark admiration for the fictional figure — an outrageous and gruesome act, to say the least. Further details on the purported movie are scant right now, but we will likely find out more over the coming months.
