Blumhouse has been developing a film adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s for several years now in collaboration with creator Scott Cawthon. In August, Jason Blum indicated that the production was working with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop on the adaptation, but things have been quiet since then…until now. Emma Tammi will helm the project, with production set to begin in February 2023.
The live-action adaptation of the popular horror video game has been in the works since 2015, just a year after the game debuted. Christopher Columbus was attached to direct the adaptation at one point, but development stalled over the years and the two parted ways. Now it’s in the hands of Tammi, who recently directed two episodes of Into the Dark for Hulu.
