At long last, we have some measure of progress on the long-awaited Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. Judging by recent social media posts, it’s looking like Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is taking the reigns and creating the animatronics for the new FNAF film by Blumhouse.

If the production of the storyline of the game had anything to do with the carnage of the movie’s development, we’d all have been stuck in the retro hellscape that is Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria for far longer than five nights. The movie has gone through more script changes than the plot of a soap opera and, in the time that it’s been in production, has cycled through too many directors to mention.

What seemed like the final straw to break the camel’s back came when series creator Scott Cawthon resigned from the project – and the gaming industry as a whole – when it came out that he had supported Trump. If we’ve learned anything in the last few years, it’s that there’s no tolerance in this hyper-tolerant society for conservative voters. 

It seems now, though, that the long road to the silver screen is finally beginning to open up to the highly-anticipated film adaptation of everyone’s favorite indie thriller game. Even more good news came in the form of a recent tweet by the founder of Blumhouse Productions, Jason Blum. According to Blum, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is going to be involved in the production of the new Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. 

‘It’s great to be working with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. Their experience and expertise with animatronics is absolutely killer! @blumhouse.’

While we don’t know exactly what Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is going to be doing, given the scope of what the Creature Shop has done previously, we expect that it’ll be heavily involved in the design and production of the animatronics. There’s a lot more in the tweet than just the confirmation that Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is involved in the movie’s production, however.

We can also quite clearly see an unfinished model of Freddy Fazbear. The reason why we know this model to be Freddy Fazbear is because of the bowtie on the model’s neck and the microphone in the model’s hand. 

Here’s hoping we start to see more hints at the movie’s production progression soon. While you’re waiting for more info on the movie, though, why not read our guide on how to download and install Five Nights at Freddy’s?
