Warner Brothers Studio has reportedly got the rights to make a movie adaptation of Scott Cawthon’s popular video game series, “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” last month, and since there is no official statement released yet regarding details of the movie, fans have come up with theories of possible plots of the film and own teaser trailers.
According to Design and Trend, the movie might not follow the story thread in the titular game it is based on and it might even introduce an origin story on why Freddy, Foxy, Chica and Bonnie became what they are. It also suggests that the movie can delve into what happened to the artifacts sold in auction after “Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction” was burnt.
However, the report also proposes that the writer might stick with the game’s original storyline and to keep the mystery for the movie watchers, they only reveal the plot using flashbacks and without revealing who the actual killer is. The last theory offered what might reportedly be the strangest one as the movie will be told on the point of view of animatronics.
Ecumenical News reports that with the massive fan base of the game, both of the game sequels have been successful and a third one is rumored to be in the works. The report also said that Youtube production companies Typhoon Cinema and Deviant Picture Films made their own version of possible movie trailers which have received positive comments and feedback. These trailers hope to inspire the producers to follow suit, the report said.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be produced by Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and Davin Katzenberg of Vertigo Entertainment and KatzSmith Productions. Adam Stone and Jay Ireland will be executive producers while Jon Berg and Nik Mavinkurve will represent Warners.
Cawthon said on an interview with the news outlet that the story will resonate with the audience, “The story really lends itself to being a movie, and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to.” While Grahame-Smith said that he is excited to work with Cawthon, “We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” the report shared.
