Blumhouse is making some great movement on its movie adaptation of the hit video game Five Nights at Freddy’s. They’ve been working on this movie for years, and they’ve eventually cast its two main stars! Matthew Lillard (Scream, SLC Punk) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) have joined the project.
The movie is based on the game franchise created by Scott Cawthon, which follows “a night security guard as he begins working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. While spending his first night on the job, he realizes the gig won’t be so easy as the animatronic animals that entertain kids during the day play their own sinister games at night.”
The movie will be directed by Emma Tammi (The Wind, Blood Moon), and she previously shared in a statement: “Stepping into the rich, terrifying world of Freddy’s alongside Scott Cawthon, Blumhouse and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is beyond thrilling. I cannot wait for audiences to immerse themselves in the wild and wonderful playground we are creating.”
Jason Blum, Blumhouse CEO, and founder, said: “Five Nights at Freddy’s is more consistently asked about than any other film I’ve ever worked on, and I’m thrilled to confirm it’s finally happening! With Emma Tammi at the helm, we’re committed to making Scott’s vision of the movie come to life. Rest assured, it will be and is worth the wait.”
