Final Destination 5 Writer Eric Heisserer & Director Steven Quale

Death Has Never Been Closer. New Line is back with another installment in the never-ending—despite the premise—franchise Final Destination. Taking over the reigns on this fourth sequel for his first time as a feature director is Steven Quale, who worked for James Cameron as second-unit director on Avatar and co-directed the 3D Aliens of the Deep IMAX film. His partner in crime is Eric Heisserer, writer of Final Destination 5, who wrote the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake and worked on The Thing prequel. I met up with both Steve and Eric last weekend for a chat about this horror franchise, shooting in 3D, and more.

Watch our interview with Final Destination 5 writer Eric Heisserer (L) & director Steve Quale (R):

Final Destination 5 was shot in 3D, so I spent a little time focusing on 3D and the filmmaking process, but made sure to ask some story-related questions and about their interests anyway. These two are relative newcomers, but I have met Eric Heisserer before and thought it would be cool to talk with him and the director together. I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of the Final Destination franchise, but this fifth movie is more of the crazy everyone-must-die mayhem that many have come to love, so expect nothing less. It's a fun and disgusting film, so I didn't mind talking with these guys about the movie. I hope those who are fans enjoyed hearing what they had to say! Final Destination 5 hits theaters this weekend, starting August 12th.
