Sylvain White Set To Direct ‘Slender Man’

In an exclusive from Deadline it’s been revealed that Sylvain White is set to direct Slender Man, upcoming thriller from Screen Gems that is due to begin production by Spring this year. White made his feature directing debut with Stomp the Yard in 2007 but may be better known for his 2010 blockbuster The Losers. Scripted by David Birke Slender Man revolves around an abnormally tall, ghostly pale, and ghoulishly thin figure with perversely long arms and a featureless face who is assumed to be responsible for the terror and disappearance of countless children and teens. It started as a multi-platform property with Screen Gems acquiring the screen rights last year from Mythology Entertainment, Madhouse Entertainment, and No Dream Entertainment.
