Some kiddie horror news off Deadline, who reports that Nickelodeon Original Films has acquired the supernatural family pitch Boogeymen from writer John Sullivan.

Described as a Men In Black-style adventure involving a fearful kid who partners up with the Boogeyman to investigate paranormal activity, the film has Howard Deutch (Pretty In Pink) attached to direct.

Sullivan recently wrote Science Fair for MGM and created the comic book “The Reaper” for Arcana Studios and Mammo Media. Deutch is currently directing episodes of HBO’s “True Blood.”

    Well, I could definitely do without this movie. Nickelodeon doesn’t exactly make stellar films. I mean, I can’t deny my love for Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” but with Nickelodeon having made more bad films than good, I would guess that this movie will just be childish slapstick dribble.
