Nicolas Cage’s next movie is a blatant Five Nights at Freddy’s ripoff

Willy’s Wonderland stars Cage as a janitor entrusted with cleaning a bedraggled cheap food joint overwhelm with reviled animatronics.

An authority Five Nights at Freddy’s film was declared right back in 2015, however it hasn’t gained a lot of ground at this point. In 2018, FNAF maker Scott Cawthon said that finding a decent screenplay had been “a genuine test.” truth be told, he’d finished a content for the venture, however then concluded he didn’t care for it, so he rejected it and began once again. In November 2020, in any case, he said he’d at last concocted something he enjoyed, and that shooting would start in spring 2021.

However, while Cawthon was being careful about hitting the nail on the head, Academy Award-winning entertainer Nicolas Cage was completing things.

Willy’s Wonderland stars Cage as The Janitor, a strange vagabond who makes an arrangement to clean a frail inexpensive food joint in return for fixes to his vehicle. The joint is spooky—reviled—and Nic is intended to be simply the following human penance. Yet, he has something important to take care of, and sky help anybody, or anything, who holds him up.

There’s a great deal to take in here. Enclosure glares, shouts, and does his dynamic applaud and-point thing, however doesn’t really express a solitary word. Guards’ ideal, most popular line is outrightly swiped: “He’s not caught in here with them—they’re caught in here with him!” And obviously the entire thing is a self-evident, in the act counterfeit of Five Nights at Freddy’s, additionally a story of endurance in the midst of a cheap café overwhelm with had animatronics.

Willy’s Wonderland was reported in 2019 however went to a great extent unnoticed, most likely due to the totally average depiction: “Pen will play a janitor, compelled to go through the night in a turned carnival where he is maneuvered into a living bad dream,” Deadline said at that point. “As the compromising animatronic characters wake up, the janitor needs to battle his way starting with one beast then onto the next to get by until morning and escape the recreation center.”

All due regard to Cage—who, for the record, I find unbelievably engaging—however his assemblage of work in the course of recent years has been ample yet not actually a danger at any Golden Globes functions. He’s had some clique hits like Mandy, yet the summary for Willy’s Wonderland seemed like one more of the many low spending Cage actioners of the most recent decade. (Recollect Jiu Jitsu? Presumably not.)

Since we have a trailer, however, Willy’s Wonderland abruptly sticks out, both as a bold sham and an astounding bit of present day grindhouse featuring a one-time Hollywood heavyweight with authentic acting slashes. I need to see this film.

Willy’s Wonderland is coming to on-request benefits in February.
