‘Poltergeist’ Director To Helm ‘Five Nights At Freddy’s,’ Teases Content; Scott Cawthon Responds To ‘FNAF’ Bashers

By Alex Cruz

Gil Kenan, director of "Monster House" and "Poltergeist," is set to direct the live-action adaptation of "Five Nights At Freddy's," a popular video game created by Scott Cawthon, Deadline exclusively reported, Tuesday.

There are some who got excited, and there are others who are doubtful. Many became curious, so the 38-year-old director took it to Twitter and showed the fans a glimpse of how the popular game will be made into a film.

He first shared a tweet with a snap of what looked like a pair of gigantic eyeballs captioning it "animatronic forever."

Then, he was asked by @RyanTVGames if the animatronics are going to be real or CGI. He responded with three consecutive "REAL's."

@AdctsGaming tweeted, "Question, Will the Five Nights at Freddy's Movie have it's own seperate story that connects to the Main Story?" Kenan said yes.

Furthermore, Kenan said that the mythology runs deep and is truly scary. He said the lore of the game is the fuel of the movie and that he is making the film for all "FNAF" fans.

The director confirmed that Scott Cawthon is going to be involved in the film, VG 24/7 reported.

Talking about Cawthon, IGN has learned that aside from thanking his fans who supported his craft, he also penned a response for the haters of "Five Nights At Freddy's."

He said that it was especially difficult when people seemed to dislike him because he has found success and thought that those people who hated him were misguided.

He admitted that he never had a successful life until this. He considers it as a blessing from God, that's why he is being responsible with that success, quoting that he doesn't party on weekends, doesn't get drunk or sip martinis and spends his evenings playing with his kids.

The full letter from the creator of "Five Nights At Freddy's" can be found here.

For those who are not familiar with the game, it centers at a restaurant called "Freddy Fazbear's Pizza." The player will act as a night guard and needs to defend himself from the animatronics.

"Five Nights At Freddy's" was first released on Aug. 8, 2014.
