The Tweet's last sentence refers to the highly anticipated movie adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy's, the survival horror game set in the family-run pizza restaurant Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, which Blum has been attached to produce since 2017. The movie rights to the game were purchased back in 2015, so the adaptation has been a long time coming.
As for Insidious 5, the movie is set 10 years after the events of Insidious: Chapter 2 and sees Wilson return as Josh Lambert. This time around, his son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) is all grown up and he's heading east to drop him off at college. However, Dalton's dream of attending an idyllic, prestigious university soon becomes a nightmare when the demons from his past decide to return. Rose Byrne is also back as Josh's wife Renai.
Along with Blum, James Wan and Leigh Wannell are returning as producers for the new movie, while the screenplay was written by Halloween Kills scribe Scott Teems.
