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.
