New Final Destination Movie On The Way, Details Revealed
The sixth movie in the successful horror franchise is now in development.
The Final Destination series was one of the most popular horror franchises of the 2000s, with five movies made since 2000 and more than $656 million grossed at the worldwide box office. It's been nine years since the last entry, 2011's Final Destination 5, but there's a new movie in the works. Now, series creator Jeffrey Reddick and producer Craig Perry have spoken about what they are planning for the next film.
In an interview with DigitalSpy, Reddick explained that, despite the long gap since the last film, he was reluctant to call the next one a reboot. "I think 'reboot' is probably too strong of a word, it makes it sound like they're going to change everything, but it's definitely a Final Destination movie," he said. "Craig is the master of coming up with crazy openings and set pieces. He's told me a couple of things that happen in this one and it's going to be a lot of fun. It's not going feel like cash-grab Final Destination film."
Perry went onto reveal that the movie would focus on first responders--who will presumably end up being chased by death like virtually every other character in the series. "We're toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen, and police," he said. "These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die."
The new Final Destination movie was first reported in January. Saw writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been attached to write the story, but there's no director has ben announced so far.
