Adding to the long list of old franchised franchises, this time the Final Destination is ready to spawn the latest series that repeats everything from the beginning.
Acting as a production house was New Line, the studio behind the success of the Final Destination franchise in the early 2000s. Even though the five Final Destination films have never received a warm welcome from critics, this line of sadistic horror films has its own appeal in attracting audiences, as evidenced by the total revenue of $ 665 million made by the five films.
The last time Final Destination launched the latest series in 2011, and after all this time being left retired, this franchise was re-turned on to the studio in the form of a reboot whose script was written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. They both seem to be familiar with blood-soaked films, considering that both of them have written the scripts of four Saw films (starting in the fourth series) plus Piranha 3DD. Patrick and Marcus are also involved in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a horror film from Guillermo del Toro that is ready for release in August 2019.
Broadly speaking, the five Final Destination films tell a handful of people who survived the deadly accident. The survivors were then warned by the main character that they would be killed in a pathetic manner. Unfortunately, even though the protagonist had already explained the bad signs he felt, the survivors were killed one by one in a series of incidents that were unusual and out of reason.
According to the news from THR, Patrick and Marcus will update the premise of Final Destination reboot, although it is not yet known what changes they want to make. Meanwhile, New Line – which is on the wind because the horror films are always successful – currently still has not determined the director.
