Five Nights at Freddy's

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?

Extra Tidbit: You don't want to know how many times I almost typed Five GUYS at Freddy's. Mmmm burgers.

I said to my friends before that this needs to be a movie. It can definitely work, and IMO, it has a good premise. I would imagine it being a mix of Panic Room and Chucky Cheese. It is a really intense game and can for sure be an intense movie. TJ Miller as the security guard, puppeteering, and suspenseful music would make for an interesting flick.

Isnt this a kids game? Dont most movies based on games alter or create story lines that differ from each other. Its really annoying how adults nit pick and turn their noses up at everything that isnt fan boy based. Like deadpool. I dont care about him AT ALL. dare I say it and I get called a fag or something. Yet they (and from the sounds of it a good team is putting this together) announce something a little original and fun and nerds act confused and pompouse.

Terrible idea!

The game is fun because we know a major jump scare will come eventually and because video games don't usually do it, but the technique has become a joke in the horror film genre.

No Thanks

I would rather see a movie version of "The Evil Within" over this. At least it has a cooler premise and the special effects would be pretty rad.

Horror Comedy movie with Seth Rogen checking the cameras, talking constantly and making panicked noises would be the same experience as watching that guy play the game.

Good Game

But theres nothing to it. Its creepy and fun but i dont feel it warrants a movie. Guess if they can turn "Battleship" into a film (and i use the term lightly) anything is possible

It might have potential

I am one of the only people I know that was unimpressed with the game itself. Just a bunch of loud noise startle-scares, lowest common denominator-type shit...
With that said, there is room for an interesting concept that could be put to use in a movie. However, I would assume the movie will go the "cheap" route and just do loud noises instead of building tension. So I'm on the fence with this idea.

The game should be called jump scare simulator.

Sounds like Chopping Mall but way deadlier and scarier.

Yeah that dude is one of the most annoying "popular" gamers with a huge following I've ever come across. He destroys anything worthy of my time due to his stupid behavior. I want to meet him so I can disable his voice forever. He's a hack, loud-mouthed bitchface.

I'm trying to think of how they could do a movie out of this. Possibly a horror comedy?? There isn't really any kind of story, just sitting in a room checking cameras.
