Cameron Protege Directing New Line's Fifth Final Destination

June 8, 2010

Final Destination

It was officially confirmed back in April that Warner Bros & New Line Cinema were now developing a fifth new Final Destination movie, despite calling the fourth one The Final Destination, because apparently it wasn't the last movie in that franchise after all. Anyway, because directors don't stick around long with this franchise, Variety reports that New Line has hired Steven Quale to direct Final Destination 5. Quale was recruited by James Cameron out of USC film school in the 80's to originally work on The Abyss. He's since worked with Cameron on special effects for Terminator 2 and directed the documentary Aliens of the Deep.

Quale will have get to work on this right away, as Final Destination 5 (most likely to be retitled) already has an August 26th, 2011 release date next year, so they better start shooting soon because they'll need time to finish visual effects and convert it to 3D. The screenplay is being written by Eric Heisserer (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Thing reboots). Craig Perry & Warren Zide, who produced the other four Final Destination movies, are producing this film as well. It should be interesting to see how Quale does in his feature debut after working with Cameron for a long time. Other than that, I don't really have any interest in this sequel.

    The first 3 were actually good films, the 4th one was meh, the 3D ruined it for me, it was too cheesy, and maybe if the 5th one wasn't 3D they might actually make it decent
