Movies based on video games haven’t exactly had a lot of success, but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from continuing to bring games to the big screen. The latest project to get the green light is a proposed film based on Five Nights at Freddy’s, the critically acclaimed 2014 indie horror game about a haunted children’s restaurant.

The film rights to Five Nights at Freddy’s (and the two spin-offs it brought forth) were grabbed by Warner Bros. Pictures, which arrangements to add to a full length film taking into account the reason of the establishment, as per The Hollywood Reporter. The undertaking will be co-created by Roy Lee (The Ring), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), and David Katzenberg (Stephen King’s IT).
The diversion was commended for its mix of straightforwardness and immersive horror, and two consequent portions of the establishment were discharged that extended its mythology. The main of those, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, really served as a prequel to the first game.
“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith in a statement accompanying the announcement.
The studio is right now looking for authors for the Five Nights at Freddy’s film.
“The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to,” said Cawthon.
