«Five Nights at Freddy’s» is finally making the leap from the console to the big screen. The video game franchise has long been set to become a horror movie, and the first trailer gives fans a hint as to what the screen version of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza will look like.
The first «Five Nights at Freddy’s» video game was released in 2014. A year later, the game’s creator Scott Cawthon announced that a movie adaption was in the works — though the project hit a number of setbacks over the years, going through a series of directors before producer Jason Blum took the lead on the project in 2017, per Variety. The final product, which is set to premiere just in time for Halloween this year, will be directed by Emma Tammi.
Ahead, check out the first trailer for the long-awaited «Five Nights at Freddy’s» film and find out what else we know about it so far.
