Sylvain White To Direct “Slender Man” Film

“The Losers” and “Stomp the Yard” director Sylvain White has been set to helm the horror film “Slender Man” for Screen Gems.

Slender Man is 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.

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 using the excuse of this internet-age bogeyman is the subject of HBO’s documentary “Beware the Slenderman” airing later this month.

Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt, William Sherak, Robyn Meisinger and Sarah Snow will produce the Screen Gems film.
