The last Final Destination was not so final after all!
A continuation of the infamous franchise “Final Destination” is currently in production after more than a decade of silence, and fans are excited!
The gore film franchise’s comeback will be produced and written by Jon Watts, a director known for his prominent work such as Marvel’s Spider-man Trilogy. The announcement was made public during the Warner Bros.’s panel at CinemaCon 2023. Final Destination 6 will also be managed by Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein, who are co-directors most notably known for co-directing Freaks, a thrilling science fiction movie.
Although the diegesis of the movie is still under confidential status, Jeffrey Reddick (writer and creator of the original Final Destination) guaranteed that this upcoming sequel’s story will not go along with the plotlines of the franchise’s previous installations.
“I will say that it’s not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we kind of added to every movie to kind of like change it up a little bit. This one is a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established. I think I can say that much,” his exact words.
Final Destination’s franchise has generated 5 consecutive movies since its first release in 2000. A general synopsis of each film centers on a specific group of people going around and cheating their deaths in seemingly ominous premonitions, yet ultimately loses to death in weird and brutally unusual ways each and every time the movie nears its conclusion.
The ill-famed series has amassed world-wide attention from horror fans due to its fascinating plot. With the unknown antagonist being the embodiment of literal death, causing these tragic “accidents” to occur by working behind the lines and tactfully orchestrating the outcome.
Sadly, the release date for the long-awaited return is still unclear, yet will be posted along with updates in the future.
