A paltry eight years after we first heard rumblings of it, we have lastly gotten our first shot of the upcoming silver display screen model of 5 Nights at Freddy’s. What’s extra, we have even bought a launch date. Blumhouse Productions introduced through its Instagram web page that 5 Nights at Freddy’s (the film) will launch in cinemas and on the Peacock streaming service on October 27 this yr.
The image provides us a primary take a look at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, the restaurant (or chain of eating places) by which the FNAF video games happen. Standing exterior, we are able to see the titular Mr Fazbear accompanied by a toddler who could or might not be Piper Rubio, who’s listed as one of many movie’s cast members.
And that is your lot, I am afraid. No signal of every other cast members, together with as soon as and future Shaggy Matthew Lillard, who was unveiled because the actor enjoying villainous Fazbear founder William Afton final December. Nonetheless, it appears to be like just like the movie has managed to seize FNAF’s disconcerting and sinister vibe.
It has been a protracted highway from the primary whispers of a 5 Nights at Freddy’s film to at this time. A movie model was first reported to be within the works at KatzSmith Productions in 2015, however presumably fell by way of. Blumhouse picked up the rights to make a film primarily based on the video games in 2017, however delays set in after FNAF creator Scott Cawthorn determined to postpone every part till he settled on the proper screenplay. Lastly, the movie misplaced its director—Chris Columbus—in 2021.
But it surely appears to be like like manufacturing lastly bought going below director Emma Tammi, and it will solely be six brief months earlier than the FNAF sequence makes it transition to the large display screen. Higher late than by no means (or I hope so, anyway).
