Five Nights at Freddy's Getting Movie Adaptation

Morgan is a writer, gamer, photographer, and heavy metal enthusiast. Her passion for gaming encompasses both AAA and indie, with a heavy focus on the latter. As AllGamers' resident indie expert, you can expect her to wax poetic about all the latest and greatest indie titles whenever the opportunity arises. 

Morgan's typical day includes an indie gaming marathon and several large cups of coffee. Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies). 

If you’d like to get in touch with Morgan, you can reach out to her via email or follow her on Twitter.

The film will be directed by Chris Columbus and produced by Blumhouse.

Earlier today, production company Blumhouse (Get Out, The Purge, Insidious) posted a tweet announcing an upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s film.

In addition to Blumhouse's involvement, developer Scott Cawthon will serve as the film's co-producer with Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire) lined up to direct.

The adaptation was originally tapped for New Line Cinema, however Blumhouse managed to acquire the rights to the FNAF franchise last year.

Not much is currently known about the film’s plot, though it will likely follow the game’s core concept about a pizza place filled with murderous animatronics (including the titular Freddy Fazbear).

Additionally, a projected release date for the film has yet to be announced. For updates on the upcoming FNAF film, be sure to follow the Blumhouse Twitter account.
