Collider I recently spoke with Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse Productions, who acquired the film rights to “Five Nights” at Freddy’s in 2017. Regarding the subject of its directorship, previously announced as Chris Columbus (the director of the first two movies The Home Alone, the first two Harry Potter movies and the pixel), Bloom said, “Chris Columbus is no longer attached. “
Scott Cawthon, creator of the Freddy series of games “Five Nights”, is still involved in the decision-making process. In 2018, when it was announced that the movie had been postponed in search of the perfect script, Causon said, “Either the right movie was made, or the movie was not made.”
As Blum told Collider, “I don’t have the right to do anything Scott doesn’t like. Basically, Scott is a bit like a’final edit’, and it takes longer than I hoped.” When asked if he found a new one. When he was a director, Bloom replied: “That’s confidential information.”
Cawthon no longer participates in the five nights event of Freddy’s game. After he retired earlier this year, he donated a large amount of funds to the conservative action committee and politicians including Donald Trump, which made many fans feel uneasy. Especially a large number of five nights of Freddy fans in the LGBTQ+ community.
At the same time, if you really want to watch a cheesy horror movie that brings animatronics to life, Nicholas Cage and Wiley’s Wonderland can meet your needs.
