Scott Cawthon is good as his word: indie horror video game Five Nights at Freddy’s (Fnaf) creator promised some news about the movie from almost two years Warner Bros would have had to begin to produce based on his creation by end of january and january 31 he posted on Stream to point out how in 2016 there were “several delays and roadblocks, some involving problems within the movie industry as a whole” adding that as a result “the movie is back at square one”.
News and doubts about Fnaf the movie
This means that we don’t see a trailer anytime soon and that maybe Warner Bros won’t be the producer and Gil Kenan (already director of Poltergeist movie remake) won’t direct it, but at least development is ongoing so far.
What’s more: Scott, who at the beginning seemed not interested in being involved in the movie the creative process, now stated he want that “this movie to be something that I’m excited for the fanbase to see”.
Some specialized sites wonder nevertheless if the movie will release at all, since in these cases even recently (Uncharted, which would have had to go out in the theatres this year while has again been postponed and perhaps cancelled) it’s not unusual for Hollywood to continue to postpone a movie production up to the point not to be interested anymore to produce it, especially when it comes to titles drawn up by video games.
Movie from video games, good record
Yet some movies drawn by videogames recently have shown to be able to gross well, like Warcraft, which worlwide grossed about 434 million dollars (the 17th best box office in 2016), The Angry Birds Movie, which worth about 350 million dollars, or Assassin’s Creed, which debuted a few days befor Christmas and has exceed 209 million dollars despite the strong competition of Rogue One, which debuted 5 days befor and has already grossed over a billion dollar.
So at the end fans hope that the delay can allow Hollywood to find the right creative mix to produce a movie which preserves the original atmosphere of Fnaf series (the movie should concern the first three titles) and still be able please a worlwide audice. Because at the end, guys, are the money that makes the world go round, especially if you talk with Hollywood producers.
