Five Nights At Freddy's Movie Loses Director Chris Columbus

Producer Jason Blum has confirmed that the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie has lost director Chris Columbus and still hasn’t found the perfect script.

Director Chris Columbus has exited Blumhouse’s film adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s. The director is best known for big-ticket family movies like Home Alone and its sequel, Mrs. DoubtfirePercy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and the first two Harry Potter movies.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is a long-gestating project that has been hitting roadblocks from the beginning.

Horror production company Blumhouse became attached to the project in 2017, but they’ve had trouble finding a script that pleases creator Scott Cawthon, who has rejected 9 different drafts.
