‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ Has Found a Director
Blumhouse’s adaptation of the popular video game, Five Nights at Freddy’s, has finally found a director.
Emma Tammi will be directing the upcoming film. Tammi made her directorial debut in 2018 with the horror western film, The Wind. The Five Nights at Freddy’s script is by Scott Cawthon, Tammi and Seth Cuddeback. In addition, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is currently working to bring the game’s animatronics to life.
Based on the 2014 videogame by Cawthon, the game follows a security guard who is working a night shift at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Joint. During his first shift, he soon realizes that the job isn’t as easy as he thought it would be.
“Five Nights at Freddy’s is more consistently asked about than any other film I’ve ever worked on, and I’m thrilled to confirm it’s finally happening!” said Blumhouse head, Jason Blum, in a statement. “With Emma Tammi at the helm, we’re committed to making Scott’s vision of the movie come to life. Rest assured, it will be and is worth the wait.”
