Scott Cawthon Delayed Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie and is Developing a New ‘AAA’ Game

I had a script written. Jason [Blum] and Chris Columbus liked it too, but I tossed it. I had a different idea for it, one that I liked better. I take responsibility for this delay; it’s my fault.

Fans of Five Nights at Freddy’s are eagerly anticipating the live-action adaptation of their beloved horror franchise. It has been in development in 2015 with Warner Bros. But in 2017, Blumhouse Productions announced they are producing the live adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s and Chris Columbus is directing. Scott Cawthon is set on writing the script for the film, but Scott has thrown that script away and is writing a new one. Scott is determined to tell the first three game’s story right.

I’m sticking to what I’ve always said, either the right movie gets made or no movie gets made. I hate delaying a project that’s already seen so many delays, but I have to go with my instincts on what I think will be exciting and interesting, and what I think the fanbase will really want to see. If that means that I have to start over ten more times, then that’s what I’m going to do. The good thing is that each attempt gets better and better, in my opinion. So, despite the delays, it’s going in the right direction.

It’s been announced that Scott Cawthon is working on a virtual reality version of Five Nights of Freddy’s. All the original games are getting an HD port to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Android, iOS, and Xbox One. He does have a triple AAA game based on the franchise, but it is in very early development.

There is a BIG deal in the works to create an incredible big-budget game! I can’t reveal any details yet as this project is still in its planning stages, but I’m working closely with the studio involved to ensure that it delivers what (I think) FNAF fans will want to see!

Cawthon’s only comment: “There is a BIG deal in the works to create an incredible big-budget game! I can’t reveal any details yet as this project is still in its planning stages, but I’m working closely with the studio involved to ensure that it delivers what (I think) FNAF fans will want to see!”

There still no release date for the movie or the new game. Fans are only left to speculate and periodically check for more updates.
