Blumhouse has confirmed that the movie adaptation of the popular indie horror game will be released October 27th, both in theaters and streaming on Peacock.
The movie will follow a lone security guard tasked with watching over Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a Chuck-E.-Cheese-style restaurant featuring massive animatronic animals. The franchise’s creator, Scott Cawthon, is co-writing the movie adaptation alongside Seth Cuddeback and director Emma Tammi.
