Today, Blumhouse announced that director Emma Tammi has been tapped to helm an adaption of the video game horror series Five Nights At Freddy’s. Back in 2018, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson director Chris Columbus was attached to direct the project. Tammi is best known for directing the 2018 western horror film The Wind.
“Five Nights at Freddy’s is more consistently asked about than any other film I’ve ever worked on, and I’m thrilled to confirm it’s finally happening! With Emma Tammi at the helm, we’re committed to making Scott’s vision of the movie come to life. Rest assured, it will be and is worth the wait.” – Producer Jason Blum
Jim Henson’s Creature Shop will also be helping develop the animatronics for the film. Production is expected to begin filming this February.
