I've never played these games before. But the aesthetic and setting makes me think it'll be a really fun films!
Scott Cawthon, creator of Five Nights At Freddy's recently was on Reddit talking to fans! During that conversation he reveled a lot of details about the upcoming films production. Including when it could potentially start filming.
He said that Spring 2021 would be when it's likely to start filming.
He also gave high praise to the films script. Saying the following:
"All the right characters, all the right motivations, all the right stakes. It’s fun, it’s scary, and it has a great central story!”
That sentiment coming from the actual creator of the games?? That's why I'm so hyped for the movie. Again, I've never played the game. But the creator giving this much praise has raised my intrigue.
