FNAF CAST: PURPLE GUY? Josh Hutcherson and Scooby-Doo's Mathew Lillard announced as cast in Blumhouse’s live-action ‘FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S’ film

Matthew Lillard and Josh Hutcherson have been cast in Blumhouse’s live-action ‘FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S’ film.

Ya tenemos confirmados los dos primeros actores de la película de Five Nights at Freddy's!

Mathew Lillard (conocido por actuar como Shaggy en Scooby Doo) y Josh Hutcherson (conocido por actuar como Walter en Zathura, Sean Anderson en Viaje al centro de la Tierra, y Hunger Games).

The characters they are playing are not being specified. Production on the film is set to begin in February in New Orleans. 

Lillard recently starred on the NBC hit Good Girls opposite Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman. He has appeared on great shows such as Bosch, Billions, Halt and Catch Fire, and many more. His previous movies are the iconic Scream and most recent reboot of He’s All That. He continues to voice ‘Shaggy’ for the Scooby Doo Franchise.

Hutcherson is best known for his performance in the highly successful franchise, The Hunger Games alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks. Earlier this year, Hutcherson completed filming 57 Seconds opposite Morgan Freeman, Little Mouth with Dennis Quaid and Isabell Fuhrman and most recently The Beekeeper. Last year, he starred opposite Liev Schreiber and Matilda De Angelis in Across the River and Into the Trees, based on Earnest Hemingway’s WW2 novel of the same name. Josh can be seen in Hulu’s original sci-fi comedy series, “Future Man,” from EPS Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. The series, for which Hutcherson, along with his production company Turkeyfoot Productions, also served as a producer, follows a janitor who must battle an intergalactic invasion and co-stars Eliza Couple and Derek Wilson. His additional film credits include Lisa Cholodenko’s Academy Award-nominated film, The Kids are All Right, which also garnered Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards and Golden Globe nominations; The Disaster Artist, a satirical drama that tells the story behind the creation of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room; and several other films. Josh and Michelle Hutcherson’s production company, Turkeyfoot Productions, partnered with Condé Nast Entertainment and Indigenous Media to launch five short films as part of “The Big Script,” an incubator featuring rising millennial filmmakers. The project aimed to find and produce independently created content that can thrive on digital and emerging platforms and is driven by unique voices. Each of the short films was released on the Condé Nast-owned digital platform, The Scene. In addition to playing a prominent role in selecting the original scripts, producing all five films and mentoring the filmmakers, Josh Hutcherson made his directorial debut in the short film, Ape, in which he also stars. Hutcherson continues his directorial passion by directing music videos.

It was announced several years earlier that Blumhouse Productions, known for its horror movies from Insidious to The Purge to The Black Phone, would be producing the FNAF movie, but little information has come out about the movie since.

There is not currently a release date or window for the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. However, Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum tweeted on October 5, 2022, that filming of the FNAF movie would begin in February 2023.

This potentially means that we could see the movie released in late 2023 or early 2024, but most likely if there are no major delays the movie should release by the end of 2024.

What we do know for sure is that Five Nights at Freddy’s will begin production in New Orleans this February with director Emma Tammi (The Wind) at the helm.

Even more exciting is that Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is hard at work on the monstrous animatronics.

Tammi, Scott Cawthon, and Seth Cuddeback wrote the screenplay for Five Nights at Freddy’s. Blumhouse is producing the film in association with Striker Entertainment. Scott Cawthon and Jason Blum will produce the film. Russell Binder is an executive producer.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror video game series in which you must survive the titular five nights at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza from the dangers of animatronic characters.

The wildly popular survival horror video game series sees players playing as a nighttime security guard slowly realizing his overnight job won’t be so easy with the characters spring to life. Players must use security cameras, lights, doors, and vents to evade the hostile animatronics. Five Nights at Freddy’s first launched in 2014 and has since amassed a minimum of eight games in the main series with multiple spinoff games. The potent jump scares and unsettling plot effectively catapulted the game into the zeitgeist and fans have been clamoring for a movie adaptation since.

Stay tuned for more details about production as we learn it.
