Five Nights at Freddy's movie in the works from Warner Bros. & IT producers
THR is reporting that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to Five Nights at Freddy's, and a movie is in the works based on the indie survival horror video game series. The site says the project is currently out to writers, and Roy Lee (Vertigo Entertainment) and KatzSmith Productions' Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are attached to the planned film as producers. The trio are producing the Cary Fukunaga-directed adaptation of Stephen King's IT, and Grahame-Smith and Katzenberg are also developing the BEETLEJUICE sequel.
Seth Grahame-Smith says he is looking forward to working with creator Scott Cawthon to make "an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie.”
Video game description from THR:
The game takes place in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a darker version of Chuck-E-Cheese, where an animatronic animal band performs kiddy songs by day, and goes on murderous rampages by night. The goal of the game is survive a night locked inside, knowing that a furry death machine might jump out of the dark at any moment.
I only just recently heard about the Five Nights at Freddy's games, and while jump scares really aren't my thing, the series has received solid reviews from most critics and has developed a bit of a cult following. Are you down for a big screen version of Five Nights at Freddy's?
