Matthew Lillard And Josh Hutcherson Have Been Cast In 'Five Nights at Freddy's'
Updated: Jan 12
Matthew Lillard and Josh Hutcherson are taking roles in the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy's, a feature film adaptation of the hit video games, currently in the works over at Blumhouse. What those roles are, or who, or what they will be playing, is currently unknown at this time.
Matthew Lillard, known for his roles in Scream, Thir13en Ghosts, and, of course, Scooby-Doo, is an interesting add to the cast of Five Nights at Freddy's. I have a feeling that the security guard is not going to be the only human character in the movie. It's fun to speculate on what character those behind FNAF have created for Lillard, and how it ties to the character Josh Hutchinson will be playing.
Hutcherson himself has been busy voicing Ultraman for Netflix's anime show going by the same name. The Hunger Games actor recently saw his character on Hulu's sci-fi comedy, Future Man come to an end after three seasons, the show ending in 2020. As far as Hutcherson's FNAF casting goes, I can totally see him in the Security Guard role. It will be very interesting to see what role the actor is officially cast in when production gets started next year in New Orleans.
Five Nights at Freddy's is currently in pre-production over at Blumhouse, the production company, founded by Jason Blum, that has been doing horror right (except for Halloween) over the last couple of decades. Scott Cawthon, creator of the Five Nights at Freddy's video games, is very much involved in the film's adaptation and will serve as FNAF's writer and producer. Emma Tammi came onboard as the film's director back in early October of this year and will be joined by the many talented people over at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to bring Five Nights at Freddy's to life.
