The soaring popularity of Five Nights at Freddy’s apparently has executives at Warner Bros. circling for a feature-length film. Wild, right? Not really. Although the FNAF’s formula is relatively simple, the universe is rife for a Hollywood re-imagining. Fans have really taken to the game, which takes place in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza—a kind of nightmarish version of Chuck-E-Cheese.
“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,” said FNAF’s creator, Scott Cawthon.
And he’s right. There are plenty of fan theories as to what the game is really about, and even Cawthon himself has had fun with the possibilities. I don’t imagine the movie will follow the game exactly, but there’s certainly potential, and because it has such a major presence in gaming and on YouTube, there’s already familiarity.
If you’ve never played Five Nights At Freddy’s, the game tasks users with surviving a night locked inside the restaurant. Simple, right? It would be if not for the murderous animatronic characters.
Seth Grahame-Smith, who will act as a producer on behalf of Vertigo Entertainment, said they aim to make a film that’s “insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable.” That pretty much sums up how I feel about any movie that features Tom Cruise.
A call has been put out for writers, so don’t expect the project to hit theaters anytime soon. But expect to see much more of Freddy Fazbear in the future.
