Blumhouse’s Five Nights At Freddy’s Movie Has Finally Found A Director
Blumhouse founder Jason Blum announced that the long-awaited movie adaptation of the popular video game, "Five Nights at Freddy’s," will begin filming February 2023. Blum shared information on the production as well as the current director, who has been switched around since the project was first announced in 2015.
The director will be Emma Tammi, and Blum stated that "We're committed to making [series creator Scott Cawthon’s] vision of the movie come to life. Rest assured, it will be and is worth the wait." In addition to two contributions to Hulu's "Into The Dark" anthology, Tammi made her feature film directing debut with the 2018 western horror "The Wind."
Blum also confirmed that Jim Henson’s Creature Shop would be responsible for the animatronics that the video game series made so terrifying. Development on this project began in 2015 and has faced multiple setbacks, but with this new announcement and Tammi in the director’s seat, it seems like the adaptation will finally come to fruition.
