There was a time when Five Nights at Freddy’s used to be the biggest thing in video games and this independently developed horror title was extremely popular among fans. Moreover, the game is still well regarded in the industry, to the extent that a movie adaptation is in development for quite some years now and the process is still going on.
Jason Blum, whose Blumhouse studio is producing the film, Five Nights at Freddy’s, recently revealed to Inverse that the movie’s production has been slowing down for years but now it has caught speed and would be progressing forward at a steady pace. The surprisingly complex film is ready with its script process while the project will need some more time to reach the finish line.
At the core of the game, Five Nights at Freddy’s is a simple game with no issues related to break-ins, having a simple premise. In addition to that, the fabric of these games is incredibly deep lore, created by Scott Cawthon, in such a vague and hidden way. The lore of Five Nights has gotten little nuts over the course of so many years and therefore, there’s a great opportunity for the movie to straighten and simplify all of it.
