Five Nights at Freddy’s is receiving a complete live-action movie based on the popular games, and here’s everything we know including its release date and cast.

The survival horror series Five Nights at Freddy’s is well-known for its creepy setting and constant jump scares. Trapped inside a Chuck-E-Cheese-style kid’s restaurant, with animatronic puppets that come alive at night, the series is the perfect fit for the big screen.

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.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Is Markiplier in the movie?

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is whether or not the self-proclaimed king of the series – Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach – will appear. According to Mark in a recent interview: “Everyone wants to know, there was a lot of confusion. Yeah, I can’t say anything particular about that. There was a lot of scheduling conflict. And I can’t say anything.”

It’s a very ambiguous answer that raises more questions than it does answers them, however, the YouTube star did not say no. So only time will tell if he will make some sort of cameo.
