Development of the film adaptation of the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” franchise has been going on for several years, but has not yet taken on final form.
In an interview with Inverse, producer Jason Blum, of Blumhouse, revealed that the project is still active, but the team has yet to figure out exactly how to bring the characters to the big screen.
“History is a big challenge. You know, “Five Nights at Freddy’s” should have been easier, because there are books, there is a giant cannon and a whole story. For a video game, I think it has more history than any other. But still, the story can fall into several rabbit holes. It can work in several ways. It’s big. Choosing which part to count first was a challenge ”.
Seth Grahame-Smith is linked as the original producer alongside saga creator Scott Cawthon, promising to deliver a “charming, crazy and terrifying film.” Chris Columbus was also linked as a director, but the main idea was rejected.
Established in 2014, “Five Nights at Freddy’s” has produced a series of horror games produced by Cawthorn, for PC and mobile phones. The games put the player in the position of a security guard for the night shift at a family restaurant, with spooky robotic animals coming to life at night. The game has already produced four sequences, in addition to the books.
“Five Nights at Freddy’s” still carries the Guinness World Record for most of the suites released that same year.
