Film editor Jeff Betancourt has been assigned to direct a sequel to Screen Gems' "Boogeyman."
Making a foray into feature directing, film editor Jeff Betancourt has been tapped to helm horror flick "Boogeyman 2", a sequel to the 2005 Screen Gems production of "Boogeyman", Production Weekly has reported.
Set to begin filming late November in Los Angeles with Brian Sieve penning the script, the project concerns a young woman who checks into a mental health facility hoping to overcome her overwhelming fears of the boogeyman. No words yet about cast and other film crew.
Working as film editor since late 1990s, Betancourt so far has involved in twelve big screen features, the first being Miguel Arteta's drama comedy of "Star Maps." His latest editing work was for "The Grudge 2" which is scheduled to hit theaters this week.
