The film–directed by Emma Tammi from a screenplay she wrote with game creator Scott Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback–stars Matthew Lillard, Josh Hutcherson and Mary Stuart Masterson.
The video game follows a night security guard who starts his job at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, but who may not live to regret his career choice. The usually cuddly animatronic animals that children love during the day become something else entirely at night.
And those animatronic creatures will be brought to cinematic life by the artisans at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
