Spider-Man director Jon Watts is penning the story for Final Destination 6, which has officially been given the greenlight by Warner Bros.
Well, we might have seen the coming. Arf. Anyway, the long-running Final Destination series of movies is set to get a sixth entry, with Warner Bros confirming at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas that Final Destination 6 is now officially a thing.
The series, that began all the way back in 2000, has always followed a bunch of people avoiding death in a major accident, and then death coming back to get them. For this caffeinated writer, it’s the second that’s the best, and I can’t be the only one who moves over a lane or two when I see a truck carrying logs bombing along a main road.
As had been first rumoured six months ago, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B Stein have been hired to direct the movie. Their highest profile feature to date is 2018’s Freaks, and they’re now officially on board. One new recruit too is Jon Watts, who directed the last trilogy of Spider-Man films for Marvel and Sony. He’s going to be producing the new Final Destination, and has penned the story treatment for it too.
No release date as of yet, but the films generally – once they get going – have a relatively quick turnaround. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
