The animated Indignant Birds film got here out fairly a number of years after the cellular video games had develop into big hits, sapping it of a few of its pig-killing thrills, and now touchscreen horror sequence 5 Nights At Freddy’s is getting an analogous therapy—although hopefully it’ll work out higher than The Indignant Birds Film did. Based on Deadline, Chris Columbus will produce, write, and direct a 5 Nights At Freddy’s film for Blumhouse, with the studio getting the rights after producer Jason Blum “received the allegiance” of creator Scott Cawthon.
The video games are primarily about what would occur if a Chuck E. Cheese’s had been tremendous spooky as an alternative of being a fun-time pizza place, and the primary sport’s reliance on huge leap scares made it very talked-about with the then-burgeoning YouTuber neighborhood in 2014 (which naturally made it very talked-about with the youngsters who like YouTubers). Since then, there have been a number of sequels, a ton of merchandise, and apparently “a sequence of bestselling novels,” with all of it centered across the thought of animatronic animal pals turning evil and making an attempt to homicide a safety guard.
Warner Bros. and New Line had been growing a 5 Nights At Freddy’s adaptation in 2015, again when the sport was a bit hotter, however that venture has evidently fallen aside in favor of this new take.
