Chris Columbus Will Direct A Five Nights At Freddy's Movie For Blumhouse

Five Nights at Freddy's Movie

Chris Columbus has reportedly been confirmed as director of the film adaptation of the popular video game "Five Nights at Freddy's".

Chris Columbus is mostly known as the director of the first two Harry Potter films. Perhaps it is surprising that a veteran in family films has been signed to adapt a horror game, but it is also worth noting that the games appeal to a wide audience including teenagers.

For those of you who don't know, Five Nights at Freddy's is a series of horror games produced exclusively by Cawthorn, which saw tremendous success on PC and mobile.

Ukrainian prosecutors accuse Saakashvili of having assisted a criminal organisation - a charge that is widely seen as trumped up. After his political career in Georgia, he moved to Ukraine as an ally of current Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko .

In fact, Blumhouse first announced the news on Twitter, where it tweeted a picture of two director's chairs.

Blumhouse landed Five Nights at Freddy's last March when movie rights were put in turnaround by New Line. The company acquired the rights to the series past year, after it failed to materialize at New Line. That Columbus will produce, write and direct the film is noteworthy, as it represents the first time he will tackle all three roles simultaneously. The studio was behind smaller-budget horror films like The Purge, Get Out, and Split, as well as the Oscar-winning drama Whiplash. That's not really Columbus's style, and considering how popular the games are with goods, they may not want to push anything past PG-13. One of the few elements the horror genre lacks is a film about creepy animatronic animals in a haunted pizzeria, and I'm so ready for a flick about just that. The game follows an overnight security guard working at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a Chuck E. Cheese-like kids party center and arcade. Let us know in the comments section down below! We guarantee you some screams and plenty of laughter, which is exactly what we expect from this movie. Then add in the terrifying premise of battling living animatronics in a dark, closed environment, and you can start to see why Blumhouse was so interested and went after a name like Columbus.
