Gil Kenan To Direct Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie



It’s being reported that Gil Kenan is directing the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s movie for Warner Bros.

Kenan recently directed the Poltergeist remake and helmed the animated Monster House movie, and City of Ember in 2008.

Deadline also reports Kenan will write the script with video game writer Tyler Burton Smith (Sleeping Dogs, Prototype 2).

Five Nights at Freddy’s is Scott Cawthon’s popular video game series that sees players play as a security guard in a Chuck-E-Cheese-like restaurant that houses evil animatronics. The fourth game was recently released, which changed things up a bit by taking place in a house.

The game is available for PC through Steam.
