I'm a huge video game player, and also love to keep with the latest and greatest of comic-based movies.

Great Scott (no pun intended)! It would seem that the Steam hit Five Nights at Freddy's will be getting a movie adaptation. Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will be acting as the producers of the film.

For those of you who don't know, Five Night's At Freddy's is a point-and-click indie horror game based in what is essentially a really dark Chuck E. Cheese's. In the beginning of each night, someone (voiced by the creator, Scott Cawthon) leaves you a voice message to clue you in as to what you're up against. From that point, you check the cameras and shut doors to make sure that the titular Freddy Fazbear and his animatronic troupe don't get into your office and kill you.

The games were made popular mostly through such "Let's Play" channels as Markiplier, PewDiePie, and JackSepticeye. The lore in the series has sparked a lot of fan theories and discussions; GameTheorist even made a video about it. Check it out.

The real question, though, is whether or not this game has enough source material to merit a feature film. Yes, there is a lot of lore, but can that alone create a movie worth one-and-a-half to two hours of your time? Perhaps this movie can bring to the forefront hidden elements of the game that no one had ever noticed? One thing I'd definitely like to be incorporated into the movie would be at least one of those Atari-type mini games. We shall see...
