Can you survive five nights?

There have been several previous attempts to get a FNAF movie off the ground, with Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Home Alone) attached to direct in 2018. An earlier version was in the works at New Line with Gil Kenan set to helm.
The first game launched back in 2014 for PC and consoles, and was set in a Chuck E. Cheese-like children’s restaurant called Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where the animatronic creatures come to life and go on a murderous rampage after dark.
Jim Henson’s Creature Shop has been enlisted to create the sinister group of children’s mascots.
