‘Final Destination 6’ Will Be Good To Go After Strikes

Death is chomping at the bit.

Final Destination 6–the much-anticipated next entry in the horror franchise–is currently stalled due to the ongoing writers’ and actor’s strike, but the series creator is striking an optimistic pose nonetheless.

Jeffrey Reddick recently told Collider that this sixth installment is “ready to go the minute the strikes are over.  We’re gonna get a winner. I spoke to (screenwriters) Guy Busick and Lori Evans Taylor and they were so gracious.”

Reddick added that “it’s nice when filmmakers call you and say they want to make sure they get the essence of what’s important to me and what makes Final Destination connect with the fans. They have gone into the story with the best heart.”

The film–slated for an undetermined debut on HBO Max–is directed by Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein (2018’s Freaks) from the script by Busick and Taylor.

No details on the film’s storyline have yet been revealed, but Reddick said it won’t follow the usual formula, while staying faithful to the franchise’s premise. That premise deals with a character having a premonition of a horrifying event, but who cheats death–only to have Death, a personified and unstoppable force, come after the survivor.

The original 2000 Final Destination–directed by James Wong from a screenplay he wrote with Reddick an Glen Morgan–stars Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith and Tony Todd. The feature earned $113 million on a $23-million budget and a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film.
