Recently, Scott Cawthon said that he hopes to give some info about the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie by the end of January. The movie hasn’t received any significant updates throughout 2016. Here’s what we know so far about this upcoming announcement.
End of January
Cawthon announced on Steam that he may receive Five Nights at Freddy’s movie updates by “end of the month.” However, Cawthon seems to be hinting at a possibility rather than a solid update. Cawthon is not the director of the movie, so he cannot fully comment on the movie’s state.
Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie
Previously, it was confirmed that Warner Bros. has the rights to the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist) was confirmed to be its director. Cawthon will be part of the movie’s development, possibly to keep the movie in line with the original content.
However, there have been barely official updates for the movie, which led fans to worry about its development. Due to lack of updates, nobody knows if the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is troubled or if it’s at development hell at the moment. Perhaps Cawthon may announce about this particular info by the end of the month.
Other than the movie, Cawthon is yet to update fans about the next Five Nights at Freddy’s novel. This is a new novel after the Silver Eyes, but it doesn’t have a confirmed plot yet. Potentially, the next novel may talk about more of the game’s lore or continue the development of the Sister Location characters.
Cawthon also previously announced some details about the upcoming console Five Nights at Freddy’s game. He’s currently picking a game studio to work with that’ll grant him control over the series’ rights and creative freedom even when collaborating. He has confirmed to be leaning to one developer, but we’ll have to wait if he actually does accept the offer. We’ll have to wait on Cawthon’s plan if he wants to do ports or whole, console-exclusive Five Nights at Freddy’s title.
