Producers and Director
The team behind “Bad Cupcake” has a strong background in horror and suspense. Jason Blum, the founder of Blumhouse, has produced numerous successful horror franchises including “The Purge”, “Insidious”, and “Get Out”.

With Scott Cawthon, the creator of the original video game, also serving as a writer and producer, fans of the franchise can expect the film to stay true to the source material. Cawthon’s involvement in the project will ensure that the essence of the video game is preserved and that fans of the franchise will recognize the familiar world of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s” is a popular survival-horror video game that was first released in 2014. The game takes place in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria, where the player takes on the role of a security guard who must survive five nights while being stalked by the animatronic animals that come to life at night. The game has since spawned several sequels and spin-offs, and has become a cultural phenomenon in the gaming world.
The film’s screenplay was co-written by Scott Cawthon, who created the original video game, and Emma Tammi, with Seth Cuddeback. The film’s story follows Mike, who takes on a job as the night security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria to pay the bills and care for his younger sister Abby.
