FINAL DESTINATION REBOOT LOCKS IN CREATIVE TEAM
Final Destination (FD,) the franchise that made us all think twice before getting on a roller coaster, is getting ready to make a huge return. This sixth installment has no official title, but it’s creative team is already locked in. Sheila Hanahan (Breaking In) is returning along with Craig Perry to produce. Perry boasts the title of being the only producer to work on every FD film since the original’s debut in 2000. Writer Lori Evans Taylor (Wicked Wicked Games) is co-penning the script for HBO Max. There’s no word quite yet on whether FD6 will serve as a mere sequel or entire reboot.
Joining the team as a producer is director Jon Watts, who has been riding high on the waves of success surrounding Spiderman: No Way Home. FD fans can rest assured that Watts has Horror credentials of his own, having led projects such as The Scariest Show on Television (2008) and Clown (2010.)
These movies usually follow a group of strangers who attempt to cheat death twice. Thanks to its unique formula, the series easily lends itself to stand-alone sequels. 2009’s The Final Destination changed all that with an ending that threaded every film in the franchise. Which impractical fears did you get from watching this series?
