Matthew Lillard and Josh Hutcherson Joins The Cast Of The Upcoming Horror Animated Film Five Nights At Freddy’s

It has been a long, strange wait for FNAF movie news. But now, it looks like the movie is finally happening. Deadline reports that production on the film adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s is picking up speed as it just got a couple of stars from Matthew Lillard and Josh Hutcherson. Variety is reporting that Lillard and Hutcherson have joined the cast of Five Nights at Freddy’s, a video game adaptation that will be produced by Blumhouse Productions.   Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror game where users play as a security guard who patrols the halls and rooms of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza restaurant at night. The player must survive five terrifying nights by keeping themselves protected from a gang of murderous animatronic creatures. The original game was released in 2014 but has since spawned two sequels. Yep, it seems like we will have a movie adaptation of “FNAF” out soon. That doesn’t mean that the movie is going to be based on the game, however.

Release Date:

Unfortunately, it’s still a ways off. The film is currently in pre-production and is expected to release sometime in 2023 or 2024.

About Five Nights At Freddy’s Game:

Five Nights at Freddy’s is a survival horror video game franchise created, designed, developed, published, and distributed by Scott Cawthon for Microsoft Windows, iOS, and Android. The series is centered on the fictional pizza restaurant Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and its animatronic animal attractions that come to life at night and hunt down the restaurant’s patrons. The first Five Nights at Freddy’s game was released via Desura on August 8, 2014. The free demo version was released one month later via Desura and Steam on September 25, 2014. An updated version called Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 was released via Steam Greenlight on October 21, 2014, followed by an official release on November 10, 2014. Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is a stand-alone sequel featuring new characters and gameplay, but the plot of the game overlaps with the events of the first game. Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 has been released on July 23, 2015, and an official demo was released on June 27, 2015. A spin-off game called Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location, which takes place in the same universe as Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 was released on October 7, 2016. The fourth installment in the series was later released on November 10th of that year.

What fans are expecting from the film?

As for what fans are expecting from the film, I think it will be largely the same thing as the games. The animatronics will all be in 3D and have their behavior, which was nowhere near true to their movements in the video games. This means that some of them probably won’t even have their trademark jumpscares and/or laughter. In a movie, they would probably look like some other animatronic animal characters that we’ve seen in other horror films. However, I would expect them to have a similar backstory as the games and what they did to your character if you didn’t complete your objective is probably the same thing that will happen to the characters in the movie.

Who will be the targeted audience? 

I guess that although the movie will appeal to fans of horror and games alike, it will be targeted toward a slightly older audience since the target market for the game is younger. I expect them to take out some of the more intense scenes from the game so that the movie won’t be too dark for younger audiences.
