New Line Starts Developing Another Final Destination Movie

While I was at the Warner Bros presentation at ShoWest a month ago, they said that The Final Destination wasn't actually the final movie in that series and that a fifth one was in the works, but since I have no care or concern for this damn franchise, I didn't mention it at the time. Heat Vision has announced that New Line / Warner Bros is officially developing another sequel, tentatively titled Final Destination 5, and has hired writer Eric Heisserer (who wrote The Thing prequel and worked on the Nightmare on Elm Street remake) to pen the script. While the plot is being kept under wraps, one new scene is said to involve laser-eye surgery.
I don't know about you guys, but I just think this franchise is so boring, so unexciting, I don't care about it in the least. The last one, the fourth film, was supposed to be the final installment (hence the name The Final Destination), but it made enough money ($181 million worldwide) for Warner Bros to actually put another sequel into develop (milking this franchise for as much money as they can, I guess). No directed is signed for Final Destination 5 yet, but they're hoping to find one soon, as they want to have it ready by next year. Just like the previous one, this sequel will be shot in and released in 3D. Anyone care about this franchise?
