I wanted to take this opportunity to give everyone a more in-depth update about the FNaF movie currently in development.
It’s been a long road, but things are going in a great direction and I’m really excited, and I wanted to share more information about the movie’s plot.
I knew that for a movie to work, the stakes would have to be high, much higher than in the games or the books.
I needed to really crank up the danger. And with that in mind, I’m thrilled to announce the first official synopsis for Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Movie!
The year is 2029, and the world is a charred ruin of what it once was.
The battle against the machines had raged for a decade, and humanity had almost been wiped out.
But then one man, Walton, taught humanity how to fight back, and how to smash those animatronic monsters into junk.
The animatronics, led by Apocalyptic Freddy, decided that there was only one way to win the war- they had to send an animatronic back in time to kill Walton’s mother’s cousin, because that cousin would someday befriend Walton and encourage him to lead the resistance.
Apocalyptic Freddy sends himself back in time just before humans win the war.
The human resistance finds the time machine however, and reprograms Apocalyptic Foxy to be Walton’s protector in the past.
Now the battle for our future will be fought in our present, as Apocalyptic Foxy does battle with Apocalyptic Freddy.
But not all is as it seems. Freddy is made of liquid fur, giving him the ability to turn into fur balls, and other things made of fur.
Let the battle begin!
Not everyone will agree with this new direction for the franchise, but just think of the merch!!!
ここ数ヵ月は、Kira（小説版の共同筆者）と映画の原稿を執筆してたんだ。Dawkoとのインタビューでも言ったけど、決定はしなかったけど沢山の人たちから色んな案をもらえてとても感謝してるよ。映画の台本を書くというのはとても難しいものだね。僕自身も二つほど草稿を書いてみたけど大して面白くなかった。でも今の原稿に生かせる要素がいくつかできたのはよかったかな。映画関連の嬉しいお知らせとして、Five Nights at Freddy’sの初稿が完成したよ！Jason Blum氏にも読んでもらって好感触を得たけど、まだまだ改善の必要がある。でも、ストーリーができたということはやはり重要だよね！設定やイベントはFNAF1を意識したものになっていて、続編（もしあれば）はFNAF2がベースになると思う。
Five Nights at Freddy’s (第一部): 初版原稿完成！
Five Nights at Freddy’s 2: 未着手
Five Nights at Freddy’s 3: 未着手
I’ve been working with Kira (my co-writer on the books) over the last several months working up a first draft for the movie script. As I mentioned in my interview with Dawko, many people have attempted (but none have succeeded) making something I was really happy with. It’s difficult to write a script for this. I even wrote two full scripts myself that were not great, but they had a lot of good elements which I was finally able to put to use in the most recent version. On that note, I’m happy to announce that the first draft of Five Nights at Freddy’s is finished! Jason Blum read it and thought it was great, although it will still need some work. The important thing, however, is that we've got a story! It will focus on the setting and events of the first game, while the second movie (if we get to make one) would be based on the second game, etc.
I’ve also been rolling around the idea in my head of going ahead and writing a draft for a second and third movie while everyone else is busy with the first, just to make sure that there is a solid story to be told, even if they never get made.
So, I’ll keep the movie news updated here:
Five Nights at Freddy’s (first movie): First Draft Complete!
Five Nights at Freddy’s 2: Not Started
Five Nights at Freddy’s 3: Not Started
Five Nights at Freddy’s (first movie): New script being worked on
OK guys, I had a script written; Jason liked it, 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.
It’s been a real challenge for everyone, including myself, to come up with a good screenplay for this. But I’m determined to find the right story. 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.
One thing that most of you might want to know is that the movie (and sequels I hope) will take place in the universe of FNAF 1-3 only. The games after Five Nights at Freddy's 3 will not exist in the movie universe. Like it or hate it, I felt that this was the best portion of the storyline to really focus in on.
