Maybe a little late to capitalize on the popularity, but Screen Gems have announced that a movie adaption on the horror character is being made into a feature length film and production of the film will begin late 2016.
The project is being developed by Sony Entertainment’s sub division Screen Gems as well as Mythology Entertainment who produced films such as White House Down (2013) and most recently Truth (2015).
Slender man himself was created as part of a Photoshop contest in 2009 through the website Something Awful. Since then the character then became an ongoing meme and was developed into multiple platforms via short stories and eventually a full video game titled Slender: The Arrival.
Strange why it took as long as it has for someone to decide to adapt a mainstream film out of this idea, the meme itself has died down quite considerably so could the people in charge make the slender character relevant again? Or is this a delayed attempt to jump on the band wagon of a pop culture entity.
Whatever the case it may be interesting to see what direction this project will go in. in the meantime...
