For those of you who have enjoyed Drew Daywalt’s (Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things, Bedfellows) track-record to date, will be very pleased to know that one of his stories is set to be made into a film, and Daywalt himself will be helming the feature.
According to the folks over at B-D, Drew Daywalt has teamed up with producer Eric B. Fleischman of EBF Productions and Larry Fessenden (Habit, Stake Land) to direct The Hurting Man.
Fessenden will be serving as executive producing on the upcoming feature.
The film “follows the story of a police officer who tragically finds his family murdered after a failed 911 call and now must work to save their souls from a demonic boogieman haunting his childhood home.”
Daywalt told the site; “I wrote this script and kept it close to my chest… Because this one was written from my own worst terrors, both as a parent of small children, and also tapping into my own childhood fears of a hideously costumed boogieman. This one’s going to scare the hell out of everyone. I promise. I can say that because it really scares me, and I’m letting my fear guide me on this one.”
