A Five Nights at Freddy's movie is coming from Harry Potter director Chris Columbus

Ah yes, the auteur behind Pixels

Chris Columbus is writing and directing a film adaption of Five Nights At Freddy's. No, not the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria dude. Rather, the American filmmaker responsible for the first two Harry Potter movies, along with old classics like Home Alone and modern movies-that-sure-do-exist like Pixels.

The film will be produced by Blumhouse Productions, which has been responsible for horror films including InsidiousParanormal ActivitySplit and the Oscar-nominated Get Out. Studio founder Jason Blum was ultimately awarded the film rights from game creator Scott Cawthon back in March of 2017.

As the video gaming (and especially streaming) community knows well by now, the Five Nights games take players through a horrific and twisted Chuck E. Cheese-like restaurant after hours, with jump scares galore. And if there's anyone we can trust to bring this subtle concept to screen in a nuanced fashion, it's the screenwriter of Christmas with the Kranks.
