The next destination is locked in.
Final Destination 6–the first entry in the horror franchise in more than a decade–is official, several months after a pair of directors was selected to helm the feature. Warner Bros. this week made the announcement at CinemaCon 2023.
The film–slated for an undetermined debut on HBO Max–will be directed by Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein (2018’s Freaks) from a screenplay by Jon Watts–who also produces with Craig Perry, Sheila Hanahan Taylor and Dianne McGunigle.
Little is known at this point about the new film’s storyline, but Jeffrey Reddick–the original Final Destination creator and writer–said this installment won’t follow the usual formula, while staying faithful to the franchise’s premise.
That premise is following a character who has a premonition of a horrifying event, but cheats his own death (saving others in the process), only to have Death–a personified and unstoppable force–come for the survivors one by one.
The original 2000 Final Destination–directed by James Wong from a screenplay he wrote with Reddick and Glen Morgan–stars Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith and Tony Todd. A Saturn Award winner for Best Horror Film, the movie earned $113 million on a $23-million budget.
