It sounds like the long gestating movie off the wildly successful game/app. “Five Nights at Freddy’s” is finally getting the go ahead on the big screen.
Christopher Columbus is set to write, direct and co-produce the movie version of the 2014 game with Jason Blum and “Blumhouse.” Mostly known for family fare (like the first two “Harry Potter” films in the wizarding series and of course “Home Alone” and “Miss Doubtfire”) Christopher will be undoubtedly be branching out into a darker realm with this film. He’s dabbled in the horror side of things a little lately with the rewrite of the new “Gremlins” movie and then executive producing “The Witch” so I’m honestly thinking this could shine.
The game is full of haunting yet fun one of-a-kind visuals. I can see this one becoming a huge hit if it’s done properly on the big screen. Regardless of whether it ends up as dark as I would like it to, it’s clearly in sure hands with Christopher Columbus writing/directing/co-producing. The only question remaining is how he handles the moments when the lights turn off.
