I honestly should've known that Hollywood wouldn't take my advice. Nothing against Gil Kenan, of course, but I believe this is just a really odd choice.
Well, it seems that the director of Monster House, City of Ember, and the recent Poltergeist remake has taken the helm of the video game adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy's with the writer of the video game Prototype 2.
On the one hand, this man knows how to use his horror-themed imagination wisely. He has a creative talent that goes unmatched. But on the other hand...he directed the Poltergeist remake. Need I say more?
