The Five nights at Freddy’s movie has officially started filming. Video game adaptations are among the most hellish projects in all of Hollywood. For the longest time, a number of video games have been adapted for the silver screen and many of them have been terrible or just okay at best. Some of the biggest also struggled to get off the ground, experiencing tons of turnover from actors, writers, directors, and so on. This is one of the biggest problems that plagued Not charted even The last of us to an extent, but the latter turned out much better than the former. One of the projects that has been in development hell for a while is the Five nights at Freddy’s movie.
However, it looks like it’s finally becoming a reality. After months of solid forward momentum with new casting announcements, several production updates and more, the film’s shooting has finally begun. Producer and Blumhouse Productions Jason Blum tweeted a set photo for the movie, confirming it was finally filming. Unfortunately, the image reveals nothing except the fact that the movie is being shot under the codename Bad Cupcake. We also see a man in a suit, but a slate blocks his face. However, it seems to be a pretty standard scene and not one of the nightmarish moments you might expect in the movie.

Blumhouse movies are usually shot on significantly smaller budgets than other major horror films and are therefore shot fairly quickly, usually for a month or two. With that knowledge, chances are we can see Five nights at Freddy’s release in time for the Halloween season later this year or in the early months of 2024, as a number of horror movies tend to release in the first two months of the year. From now on, we’ll have to wait and see what happens, but the movie will soon become a reality!
