‘Final Destination Six’ is coming soon.
Fans of the horror franchise ‘Final Destination’ will be excited to learn a sixth movie is currently in development. From 2000 to 2011, the franchise released five films, which made $656 million at the box office. Nine years after the last episode, the original creator Jeffrey Reddick and producer Craig Perry have reunited to work on a sequel.
In a recent interview, Reddick said the new movie would not be 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 a Final Destination movie,” said the creator. “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.”
Details of the potential plot, the duo reveals they have been considering thinking about focusing on first responders as they are continually facing real death situations. “We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen, and police,” said Perry. “These people deal with death on the front lines every day and make choices that can cause people to live or die.”
There is no director or official release date yet. But, ‘Saw’ writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are reportedly working on the movie. Stay tuned for additional news as it becomes available.
