Josh Hutcherson Fights For His Life in a Terrifying Pizza Place in the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” Trailer
“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 full trailer, released June 27, gives fans a look at what the screen version of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza will entail.
The first “Five Nights at Freddy’s” video game was released in 2014. The horror game franchise centers around the Chuck E. Cheese-esque pizza place, where terrifying animatronics come to life. In most of the games, the player is a nighttime employee who must defend themselves when they attack at night. There have been nine games in the franchise so far.
Back in 2015, 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 from a screenplay she wrote with Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback.
