Five Nights At Freddy’s… the movie?

April 8th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Following in the footsteps on Minecraft, Five Nights At Freddy’s is becoming something of a phenomenon and now it’s about to break out from its gaming roots and head to the big screen…

Warner Bros have picked up the rights to the horror game which is set to be produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment along with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions.

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.

Producer Grahame-Smith said: “We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie. The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to.”

The movie is seeking writers at the minute, so it’s still a while away. We’ll keep you up-to-date.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
