The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie based on the series of scary video games is moving forward with some positive news. Series creator Scott Cawthon has selected a script for the film and filming will begin in Spring 2021 at Get Out studio Blumhouse.
Writing on Reddit, Cawthon elaborated on a number of different scripts that he considered for the movie, but ultimately backed away from due to their problems. Some of these scripts were written by Cawthon himself, while other, unnamed writers submitted scripts, too. Additionally “big studios” and “big directors” were involved in some of the pitches, but Cawthon shared no names.
He did, however, provide a brief overview of each of the rejected scripts that he considered before settling on the one that will enter production in Spring 2021.
