Gil Kenan: “Five Nights At Freddy’s” Movie Set In 1987? During That Infamous Bite?

Gil Kenan of “Monster House” fame gave another fun fact for his “Five Nights at Freddy’s” movie. The 38-year-old director made it public that the narrative of their adaptation is set on a time period. The said time period mentioned? 1987. Read on for more details.

In a report from Design and Trend, the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” expanded mythos will play a crucial element in the storyline as with any bit of luck it will tie any loose ends that have long bothered the video game user.


With that implied Kenan brought up the year 1987, a date infamous to FNAF fans as it recounts a horrible episode inside Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Such an incident was also given a hint in the first game by the Phone Guy. However, the details of the assault and the responsible party for the assault…err animatronic has all been hazy.

Three facts though remains certain:  the target now has poor decision-making skills due to the acquired injury of the front part of his brain, the pizzaria got a bad rap, and their customers dwindled resulting in the business’ decline.

For more speculations about this happening, Scratch makes clear on some debatable points from this incident.

Kenan again emphasized that he wants the creator Scott Cawthon truly involved in the movie project. They will not be limiting the audience just for kids but for the fans of the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” as well.

This may be due to the fact that the Kenan, a huge horror fan has also made it clear that they will be utilizing actual robotics.

In a past report from this website, the director showcased a collection of molded pieces from the set, some were truly bizarre and some were hideous looking. These monstrosities were with great flair done by the Jim Henson Creature Shop.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s” still has no actors and no release date yet attached to it.
