The director is best known for first-class family movies like Home Alone and its spin-off, Mrs. Doubtfire, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and the initial two Harry Potter movies. At the point when Columbus was attached to Five Nights at Freddy’s in 2018, that film would have been his first straightforward blood and gore flick, permitting him to draw on the driving forces he reveled when he composed the content for Gremlins back in the mid ’80s.
Talking with Collider, maker Jason Blum declared that despite the fact that Five Nights at Freddy’s should begin recording in Spring of this current year, Chris Columbus has pulled back from the undertaking. He didn’t clarify why the director headed out in different directions from Freddy’s, yet he reiterated his consistent abstain that the content is “really difficult to break.” It’s “taken longer than [he] would have liked to get the right story,” yet he states unquestionably that they are “far from surrendering.” Read the full statement here:
Chris Columbus is presently not attached. [Whether there’s a new director] is characterized information. [The script is] really extreme to break.
We’ve composed various scripts, and we have where we’re stringing a needle, which is doing equity to Five Nights at Freddy’s and making Scott (Cawthon) glad. The main way that we would go with regards to it is giving Scott … I would prefer not to accomplish something that Scott doesn’t care for. Let me say that an alternate way. I don’t reserve the option to do anything Scott doesn’t care for. Fundamentally, Scott has similar to what could be compared to “finished product” and it’s taken longer than I would have liked to get the right story.
We’re far from surrendering. Furthermore, I’m certain in the long run I will sort it out.
Ideally, it will not take long to attach another director thinking about the organization’s admittance to a tremendous stable of capable repulsiveness producers. With respect to the content, Five Nights at Freddy’s strength have a lot of history at this point because of the many games that have since been released in the series, however it very well may be useful for Blumhouse to support straightforwardness. The game ultimately has an extremely pared-down premise for conveying alarms and doesn’t require a lot sprucing up. Fans who have played through the whole franchise will partake in a lot of Easter eggs and created folklore, however that isn’t fundamental to conveying the incredible shocks the games are known for.
