Movie Will “Take Place In The World Of First Responders”
Last January reports that a new Final Destination movie was on its way. It was described to be a reboot, but new plot details have now quashed those rumours.
The previous films have dealt with Death chasing plane crash survivors, those who escaped a motorway pile-up and people getting trapped on a rollercoaster, however, this time they’ll be focusing on the emergency services.
According to Screen Rant, franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick said –
“The horror geek in me is excited when they’re doing a new one, I really like those writers a lot. I’ve been talking to Craig and the concept behind it is unique. 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.”
Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston will write the new film. Both previously worked on the Saw series. Reddick spoke about their involvement:
“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.”
Producer Craig Perry spoke of those who will be effected in the next Final Destination –
“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. We rely on their good judgement, expertise, and calm demeanour. So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death – but now for themselves? We’re thinking that world might be an interesting way into a Final Destination movie, and one which can also generate unique set pieces in a very credible way.”
“The last thing I’ll say is, I don’t think anybody will look at a revolving door in the same way again…”
There can’t be much left at the bottom of the barrel, right?
