Final Destination aka Final Destination 6 is an American supernatural horror feature film in development and a re-imagining/reboot of the franchise that began in 2000 with the first James Wong-directed Final Destination movie starring Devon Sawa.
In the movie and its sequels, a group of people are saved from death thanks to a premonition, only for fate and the Grim Reaper to catch up with them eventually prompting a chain of elaborate demises.
A screenplay for the New Line Cinema reimagining is being written by genre specialists Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark; The Collection; Piranha 3DD; Saw 3D; et al). The busy pair is also developing an untitled Christmas horror project for Platinum Dunes/Sony, plus Paramount movie The Reckoning.
Franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick tweeted: “I couldn’t be more thrilled @MarcusDunstan and @PatrickWMelton are penning the script. They’re great guys and writers. My baby is in amazing hands. :)”
