Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are all set to produce a film adaptation of the popular indie survival horror video game title “Five Nights at Freddy’s” which Warner Bros. Pictures has scored the rights to.
Scott Cawthon created the three games in the series so far with each set in a fictional pizza restaurant. Using security cameras, the player must track the movements of malfunctioning and murderous animatronic animal characters. The aim is to survive five nights, knowing that a giant killer furry could jump out at you at any moment.
Cawthon says: “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.” The project is currently out to writers, and Adam Stone and Jay Ireland will exec produce.
