Somehow we still don’t have a movie based on Halo or Assassin’s Creed, but Hollywood has started working on one for Five Nights at Freddy’s. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has picked up the film rights to the low-budget horror game trilogy. The project is currently in the writing stage, but Roy Lee of Warners’ Vertigo imprint will be producing. Lee just wrapped production on the Poltergeist remake that everyone has been clamoring to see. At this early stage of production we may never actually see the movie made, but Five Nights at Freddy’s developer Scott Cawthon thinks there is the potential in his game for a good film.
“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.”
How will the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie be any scarier than watching PewDiePie play it?
