Recent horror cult hit Five Nights at Freddy's is being adapted into a feature film.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has picked up the film rights for the property about possessed animatronic animals haunting a children's pizza place after hours.
The movie will be produced by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith along with his studio partner at KatzSmith Productions, David Katzenberg. The pair are currently developing a Beetlejuice sequel. Vertigo Entertainment's Roy Lee (The Departed, The Lego Movie) is also producing.
The project is currently seeking screenwriters.
"The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to," said Five Night at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon.
Indeed, being afraid of animatronic animal people at abandoned children's restaurants is a universal fear.
"We're looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie," added Grahame-Smith.
There's no telling whether this picture will actually see the light of day, but it's certainly an out-of-left field property to pick up given that the series was made by one guy and only premiered last summer.
