That destination looms a bit larger now.
Final Destination 6–the first film in the horror franchise in more than a decade–has found a couple of genre directors to guide it to the finish line, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein–best known for the 2018 horror-s/f flick Freaks–will take over the reins of this New Line film, working from a screenplay by Lori Evans Taylor and Guy Busick. Jon Watts, Craig Perry, Sheila Hanahan Taylor and Dianne McGunigle are on board as producers.
The film–slated for an undetermined debut on HBO Max–does not yet have a clear synopsis, but it’s expected the core concept will remain, in some form. The basic storyline follows a character that has a premonition of a horrific event, but cheats his own death (saving other lives 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 Jeffrey Reddick and Glen Morgan–stars Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith and Tony Todd. Despite poor reviews, the film earned $113 million on a $23-million budget and won a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film.
