"American Horror Story" will focus on Slender Man, US Weekly quotes an unnamed source close to the FX drama saying.

Slender Man is a tall, slender child stalker who came to life in 2009 as an internet meme.

"Someone else wrote the script, and AHS wants to adapt it to fit the show," source told the magazine. "They have to buy the rights. Then they're going to figure out the cast from there."

Producers are hoping Lady Gaga, who won a Golden Globe for her season 5 role in the series, will return to the cast for another year.
