There’s another "Boogeyman" in the works, and it’s got a director. According to Production Weekly (via Cinescape), it’s Jeff Betancourt, who edited a number of recent flicks, including "When a Stranger Calls," "The Exorcism of Emily Rose," and "Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle."
Bettencourt is the editor of another horror sequel, "The Grudge 2," which hits theaters Friday. "Boogeyman 2" will begin production in Los Angeles in November. The plot involves a young woman who learns the hard way that directly confronting one’s fears can have terrifying consequences.
The original 2005 "Boogeyman" starred Lucy Lawless and was directed by "Get Carter" helmer Stephen Kay. The pic garnered just 14 percent on the Tomatometer, but was a surprise hit, grossing $46 million at the box office and $36 million from DVD rentals. Kay subsequently returned to directing in the realm of television.
