Right, so this is a thing. I’ll not lie, this whole Five Nights at Freddy’s thing has passed me by… though my son reckons it’s the stuff of nightmares.
So, here’s the deal, Five Nights at Freddy’s is a mobile game, by Scott Cawthon, in which you have to spend the night in a pizza place called Freddy’s (correct me if i’m wrong). The deal is that, once dark, the animatronic animals come to life and murder people, led by, you guessed it, Freddy – here’s the bear with the top hat above.
Now, I’m assured the game is scary and, with the fourth one just released, it’s a very popular one too. In fact, I think I might download it after I write this.
Deadline reports that Gil Kenan, nominated for an Academy Award for 2006 animated movie Monster House, has signed on at Warner Bros to direct the big screen version of Five Nights at Freddy’s.
He and Tyler Burton Smith will write the script.
Are there an Freddy fans here? Let us know if this is something you want to see and if you think Kenan is the man for the job.
