Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie Being Produced by Blumhouse


Nearly two years ago, it was announced that Warner Bros. picked up the rights to make a film based on the indie game sensation Five Nights at Freddy’s. The last we heard, the film was being directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), written by Kenan with Tyler Burton Smith, and produced by Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg. Since then, it’s been rather silent on the progress of the film.

Earlier today, however, FNAF creator Scott Cawthon sent out his first tweet, which was a rather interesting photo of a director’s chair with the word “Freddy” on it and in the background is the Blumhouse Productions logo. Looks like the company behind such titles as Insidious, The Purge, Paranormal Activity, and the like are getting into the haunted animatronic animal industry!

Personally speaking, I’m 100% okay with this. The games take place in a single-setting location, which is what Blumhouse thrives at offering. There really is no greater partnership that I can think of here.

But what are your thoughts? Are you excited for a FNAF movie? Do you think Blumhouse is a good production company for the film? Let us know in the comments!
