Screen Gems, the studio behind the Resident Evil franchise, is currently under negotiations to bring Slenderman to the big screen in 2017.
The movie will be produced in collaboration with Mythology Entertainment after they bought the rights to the character from Eric Knudsen, its creator. The thin, faceless, suited man was born as a meme in the Something Awful forum.
The thread was a photoshop contest in which users had to edit everyday images in a way the seemed paranormal. User Eric Knudsen took part, and shared two photos of children being stalked by the spectral figure.
Since then, Slenderman has appeared in many fiction stories and even video games, such as Minecraft.
Now his turn has comed to chase us in the big screen.
