As reported today by deadline, Sylvain White has been tapped to direct a horror film based on the Creepypasta fan-fiction character Slender Man. The film, which is currently in pre-production, is slated for a 2018 release.
White has not made a feature film since 2010’s comic adaptation the Losers. He has directed a number of television shows since, including eight episodes of Hawaii Five-O. White was once rumored to be attached to Frank Miller’s Ronin as the director of the futuristic Samurai comic, but there have been no updates for quite some time on a potential film.
