Five Nights at Freddy's Movie On The Way
The popular video game about a security guard and possessed animatronics at a pizza joint is getting a movie treatment.
THR reports plans are underway for a Five Nights At Freddy's movie.
Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to the film, which is based on the video game created by Scott Cawthon.
The Five Nights At Freddy's movie will be produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment as well as Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions.
“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” Grahame-Smith offered.
"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," added Cawthon, who recently released the third game in the series.
The Five Nights At Freddy's video game series sees players playing as a security guard at a Chuck-E-Cheese style pizza restaurant where the animatronics come to life during the night. Players need to stay survive the night in order to complete the game, which features the popular animatronic characters Freddy the bear, Bonnie the bunny, Chicka the chicken and Foxy the pirate fox.
