Nicolas Cage is going straight-up Five Nights at Freddy’s in his next film. Willy’s Wonderland as its titled has an all-too familiar plot and features Cage going up against a group of killer animatronics, running amok in an amusement park.
Those familiar with the video game series Five Night’s at Freddy’s will certainly feel a sense of deja-vu. That’s because both this film and that game have almost the same story setup. The only difference here is that we get the gift of Cage bringing his specific brand of Caginess to the project.
The synopsis for Willy’s Wonderland goes like this:
“The Janitor (Nicolas Cage) is a quiet drifter who is tricked into a janitorial job at the now condemned Willy’s Wonderland. The mundane tasks suddenly become an all-out fight for survival against wave after wave of demonic animatronics. He teams up with a group of teens who also find their way into the abandon Wally’s Wonderland.”
Blumhouse Pictures is in talks to develop an actual licensed Five Nights at Freddy’s film, but while we wait on that, we have this. It is sure to bring about a very specific brand of kooky Cage.
