While character details remain under wraps, we can at least celebrate that Jim Henson’s Creature Shop has been hard at work on the monstrous animatronics!
Tammi, Scott Cawthon, and Seth Cuddeback wrote the screenplay for Five Nights at Freddy’s. Blumhouse is producing the film in association with Striker Entertainment. Scott Cawthon and Jason Blum will produce the film. Beatriz Sequeira and Russell Binder are executive producers.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror video game series in which you must survive the titular five nights at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza from the dangers of animatronic characters.
The wildly popular survival horror video game series sees players playing as a nighttime security guard slowly realizing his overnight job won’t be so easy with the characters spring to life. Players must use security cameras, lights, doors, and vents to evade the hostile animatronics. Five Nights at Freddy’s first launched in 2014 and has since amassed a minimum of eight games in the main series with multiple spinoff games. The potent jump scares and unsettling plot effectively catapulted the game into the zeitgeist and fans have been clamoring for a movie adaptation since.
