It was many, many, many years of development. I have gotten to know Scott very well during that time and have grown very fond of him. I think he’s a really special person, a really creative person, probably more creative than he gives himself credit for in some ways, I would say. And we had to find a structure that worked for us to make this film together (…) We finally found it and made the film and, as you can hear from my voice, I am extremely proud of the film we made together.’
Who is Scott Cawthon?
He is an American former video game developer, writer, and producer. He created the franchise Five Nights at Freddy’s, which began with the development and release of its first installment in 2014. Published independently, the game quickly gained popularity and cult status. Cawthon developed 10 games for the series from 2014 until his retirement in 2021, in addition to three spinoffs. He also wrote several stories based on Five Nights at Freddy’sincluding the novel The Silver Eyes and the upcoming Blumhouse film.
Scott had extensive experience in the world of video game development before beginning to work on the franchise that would bring him fame. He had participated in more than 50 video games since 1994 before beginning development of the first Five Nights at Freddy’s title.
Because the film has been produced over several years, there was even speculation that it might not come to fruition. In this regard, Blum commented:
I really love challenges. (Creator Scott Cawthon) had been working on it as a movie with a studio for a while, and it didn’t work out; This was many years ago. Everyone said we would never be able to finish the movie, even, by the way, internally at my company. They made fun of me for chasing this, this thing that could never happen, and that always lights a fire under me by saying, “I bet I can do this.
The turbulent development of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie.
Warner Bros. Pictures announced in April 2015 that it had acquired the rights to the saga for a film adaptation. However, in January 2017, Cawthon stated that due partially to “issues within the film industry at large”, the film “encountered several delays and obstacles” and was “back to square one”. In March 2017 it moved into development under production company Blumhouse, where he began teaming with Jason Blum, the studio’s CEO and founder.
Over the next three years, the film would be mired in further delays, and by November 20, 2020, Cawthon made a post on Reddit discussing the various scrapped scripts for the film, followed by the announcement that the production had a script. definitive and that filming would begin in the spring of 2021. However, Jason Blum revealed in September 2021 that the film still had problems with the script. Even with all these inconveniences, filming began in February 2023, releasing the first trailer in May 2023. The film will be released in theaters and on the Peacock digital platform on October 27, 2023.
