Warner Bros. Turning FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S Into a Movie

Warner Bros. Game Turned Movie

THR announces that Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to Scott Cawthon’s horror game series Five Nights at Freddy’s for the purpose of turning it into a film.

The game inspired by Chuck E. Cheese’s places you at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, while cuddly animatronics try to kill you.

Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesSeth Grahame-Smith is one of the producers along with David Katzenberg and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.

Grahame-Smith noted,

“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie.” Cawthon added, “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.”

No writers have been named yet and no director is currently attached, but the film could turn out to be family horror, which is unusual enough to be interesting.
