Five Nights At Freddy’s

Is Blumhouse Making The “Five Nights At Freddy’s” Movie?

WRITER’S NOTE: Hey, remember me? I am the guy who used to write weekly on a little horror blog called warrenisweird. Yeah, I know; I have been ‘missing’ for quite some time now, but with planning for college [the last two weeks have been me playing telephone tag/sending emails to Coordinators and Professors] and working almost six days a week, [a co-worker recently quit, which left a ton of room for extra shifts on my part. Naturally, I said yes!] I have hardly had any time to myself. When I do get time to relax, I have spent it playing on my new [and shiny!] PS4 that Stephanie got me for my birthday that just past. [if you are interested in adding me on PS+, send me a comment and we will talk about it!] Therefore, I want to make it crystal clear that I still will be writing warrenisweird blog posts.. just very infrequently; at least until this whole college situation is under control and I find the time. Now, onto today’s post!


Say what you will, but ever since Five Nights At Freddy’s broke onto the gaming scene and started terrifying players back in 2014, it seemed almost like a guarantee that a Five Nights At Freddy’s movie was sure to follow. Almost like clockwork, the game – which has had multiple sequels and even a series of books – was grabbed for a film adaptation by Warner Bros. a year later; in 2015. However, for some reason, we have not heard anything about it since then.

So does this imply that the project is dead? Not quite.. because very recently Five Nights At Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon posted a very interesting Tweet that seems to suggest the film is coming sooner rather than later, check out the Tweet below!

Naturally, everyone who is a fan of the game[s] jumped at Scott, asking if the movie really is coming to fruition after all, which he did not reply to. But, it is important to realize that this is the first Tweet Cawthon has EVER posted [seriously, check out his account] so it must mean that something is happening. But what does it mean? For starters, it seems that Warner Bros. is no longer making the movie and [based on the projector screen behind the chair] Blumhouse has become [one of] several companies seemingly very interested in acquiring the rights. Put that together with Cawthon’s [only] Tweet, and it is safe to assume that Blumhouse has come aboard to save the day. Be aware though, I am not going to say that this is confirmed, and that the deal has been sealed. I would be fairly surprised though if Cawthon Tweeted this before it was official. [So keep your fingers crossed!]

So the question remains, is Blumhouse making a Five Nights At Freddy’s video game movie adaptation? Could Markiplier be part of the film? This one single Tweet has left fans – myself included – with many questions. What are Your thoughts on a FNAF movie, and how would You like it be done? Let me know in the comments below!
