‘Five Nights at Freddy’s‘ is an upcoming American film directed by Emma Tammi and is based on the video game franchise of the same name, created by Scott Cawthon. The movie will be produced by Blumhouse Productions and Striker Entertainment.
The movie has been a long time coming as development began in April 2015. After multiple changes of studios, Blumhouse Productions became the producers of the film. Filming began in February 2023 and wrapped on April 3, 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about Five Nights at Freddy’s.
Five Nights at Freddy’s Release Date
A release date has been confirmed and fans can cross the dates on their calendars as Five Nights at Freddy’s is all set to release on October 27, 2023. The film is all set for a theatrical release and will also be available on Peacock. The franchise is one of the most popular and scary ones to date. Along with spin-off games, the franchise also includes a novel trilogy, etc.
What to Expect in Five Nights at Freddy’s?
Here’s what the official plot for the movie states-
Mike Schmidt, a troubled security guard, accepts a night-time job at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a once-successful abandoned family entertainment center, where he discovers its four animatronic mascots, Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy move and kill anyone that is still there after midnight.
Apart from this, the rest of the plot of the movie remains under wrap. The movie will likely stick to the source material that made the franchise so popular. Scott Cawthon along with Emma Tammi and Seth Cuddeback are behind the screenplay of the film.
The so-called family entertainment center will likely be ‘Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza’. In the video games, the player assumes the role of the night-time employee so we are likely to get a POV of Mike Schmidt in the movie. Fans are excited as they have waited years to finally see a movie adaption from the franchise.
