Final Destintation Cheating Death Again with Two More Sequels?
Since the series is all about cheating death, it seems only appropriate the the Final Destination franchise lives on even after the fourth installment was originally deemed to be THE Final Destination. Last year we learned that the next sequel, apparently dubbed 5nal Destination, would be directed by Steven Quale, a USC film student recruited by James Cameron in the 80's while he was working on The Abyss. Looks like he's not doing much with that experience now, but the newest scrap of info comes from actor Tony Todd, a staple franchise character, told Dread Central that if all goes well, there will be two more sequels up next.
When asked what audiences can expect from a fifth Final Destination installment, Todd said, "Thumbs up! Thumbs way up. They expanded my part, and the producer told me as we were leaving Vancouver that if it opens at Number 1 – which statistically it has – they’re going to shoot the next two simultaneously." Yes, the most recent Final Destination sequel opened at the top of the box office, but before that the others had only come in second or third place. Still not bad for a horror franchise that should've died a long time ago, I guess.
Yet again being shot and presented in 3D, 5nal Destination sees Death being just as omnipresent as ever and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But these unsuspecting souls were never supposed to survive, and in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda. Personally, I look forward to the day when Death gets his shit together and kills the Final Destination franchise. How about you?
