Honey Buzz ~ A Slender Man Movie is Coming... But Do We Care?

How many fucks do you give about Slender Man? Since we are now seven years past the initial onslaught of the Slender Man hysteria caused by his arrival on the Creepypasta scene, it seems an odd time to finally make a movie about the skinny, skulking dude. Especially since we already have books, cross-over books, video games, apps, ring tones, costumes, and just about anything else you can think of related to a thing that started out as a photoshop experiment.

But here we are, with a Slender Man movie on the way just the same. Someone page Doug Jones, STAT!

The worldwide rights to basically anything Slender Man related were acquired by three different production companies (none of them terribly prolific in any way), but who are now in negotiations with ScreenGems (The Underworld series, Deliver Us From Evil, Vacancy) to distribute the feature and find a director. Apparently, there is already a script in play, penned by David Birke (13 Sins), as well as official producers from the original three production companies, and a planned shooting date of Fall '16. But that's about it so far.

So what do you think, ghoulies? Do you care about a Slender Man movie? Or is this just another creepy supernatural movie in a sea of many that happens to have some deeply unsettling real life connections?
