There’s not a great deal of news out there at the moment, and it will probably remain this way for the next couple of months the way things are going, but we do have a couple of tidbits about the new Final Destination film for you.
In January the news broke that the script was being retooled by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan who wrote four Saw sequels plus The Collector and The Collection, which led many to believe that it wouldn’t have anything to do with the previous installments of the franchise and be a complete overhaul.
However, a new interview by ‘Digital Spy with franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick and producer Craig Perry reveals that this isn’t true. Said Reddick:
“I think ‘reboot’ is probably too strong of a word, it makes it sound like they’re going to change everything, but it’s definitely a Final Destination movie, and it’s definitely canon. 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 a cash-grab Final Destination film.”
“We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police. These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die.”
Anyway, here’s something for all you fans of this series to keep you going….as long as you still feel that, in these trying times, you can enjoy and even laugh at people dying in spectacularly gruesome ways!
