'Five Nights at Freddy's' Movie News, Release Date & Update: Film Forecasted To Come By Mid 2018
Plans for the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” movie has died down but such does not entirely mean that Warner Bros. has shelved plans for the film adaptation of Scott Cawthon’s popular video game.
Director Gil Kenan addressed the growing speculations behind the cancellation of “Five Nights at Freddy’s”, revealing that the movie will move forward and that the reason for the delay is the script development phase.
@truelexatom no, not cancelled, just in the very long script development phase... Still working on it!

Target release date unofficially June 2018
The whole explanation tied up to scripting issues should appease “Five Nights at Freddy’s” fans for now and hopefully Kenan or anyone behind the film adaptation development can shed more light in the coming months.
Just the same, MNR Daily posted that “Five Nights at Freddy’s” could be out by June, 2018. The script will be written by Kenan with support coming from Tyler Burton Smith.
The Hollywood Reporter adds that other people behind the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” movie will include Roy Lee, David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame as producers.
The setting for 'Five Nights at Freddy’s'
While many may have heard about how producers will approach “Five Nights at Freddy’s”, here is a recap just the same from the same THR report.
“Five Nights at Freddy’s” will takes place at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a darker version of Chuck-E-Cheese, where an animatronic animal band performs kiddy songs by day and goes on murderous rampages by night.
For the ones who tried playing the horror game, the goal is to survive a night while locked inside, knowing that a furry death machine might jump out of the dark at any moment.
As previously reported here on Game N Guide, there is other available details yet on the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” movie other than expecting it to apply what the game script has and possibly some tweaks once all is ironed out.
