Chris Columbus To Helm Five Nights At Freddy’s
Director Chris Columbus has been tapped by Universal Pictures to direct a movie adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s.
Best known for his work on Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone and its sequel The Chamber of Secrets, Columbus is also remembered for directing such classic 80’s and 90’s fare as Adventures in Babysitting, Home Alone, and Mrs. Doubtfire. Additionally, he has served as a scribe on any number of popular properties, from 1985’s The Goonies to 2004’s Christmas with the Kranks. Currently, he is working on a remake of the South Korean comedy Hello Ghost and the French animated series Miraculous.
Spanning six main games and one spin-off, Five Nights at Freddy’s has grown from a humble Android game into a veritable craze with toys, clothes, and a devoted fanbase that has created hours upon hours of original fiction and lore to flesh out the universe created by the series.
Comingsoon.net shares the following information about the game and its story:
The underlying story of the franchise is very cryptic and hidden throughout the games, giving the upcoming film the opportunity to expand on and confirm the story details. Mini-games throughout the series have offered clues to the underlying story of what caused the animatronics of Freddy Fazbear and his friends to haunt the location, pointing toward a decade-spanning child murderer and the return of his victims from beyond the grave.
