There is a time when a boy goes from playing reassuring video games like Super Mario to something darker like the indie video game Five Nights at Freddy’s (Fnaf) and tells you that not only there are already four chapters (the latest being distributed from August 8 2015), playable on PC and smartphone / tablet iOS and Android of this survival-horror game developed by Scott Cawthon and published for the first time on Dasura August 8, 2014, but also that Warner Bros has picked up the rights for a movie adaptation which will be produced by Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg.
Fnaf will be a Warner Bros movie
The news about the movie actually dates back to early April this year, but so far there were a few more informations. First of all, Gil Kenan (who previously directed “Monster House”, produced in 2006 by Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, and the less lucky “City of Ember” in 2008), who is busy these months also filming the remake of “Poltergeist”, has been chosen as director.
It would seem that Kenan wants to use as little as possible the CGI animation and collaborate with Cawthon to create a film that Seth Grahame-Smith would like to be “insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable”, suitable for everyone and not only to fans of the horror genre.
For now on Kenan’s Twitter and Instagram account (in July and August) appeared the first pictures of the props and the set of the Five Nights at Freddy’s pizza (that you see reproduced in this article) and a little more.
Cawthon at work on the fifth chapter of Fnaf
Kenan has however assured fans that the film will be faithful to the game (although it is unclear whether all four chapters of the franchisee will be cited or if the plot will revolve around only one of them) while not yet known nor the actors or more trailers.
In return Cawthon is already working on the fifth installment of the video game that will be released in 2016 and apparently will be quite different from the previous ones, so far with the scary animatronic that they will look nice passing by a “point and click” mechanism to a role playing game.
Since we still aren’t able to offer you a teaser of the movie, we think of doing something pleasing to show the trailer of the fifth installment of the video game, called “Sister Location”.
