The first Final Destination movie was released in 2000 and went to be a huge success and has had four more films that followed. Then last year, it was revealed writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan from the Saw franchise were working on a reboot of sorts, which makes it the sixth entry in the horror franchise. There hasn’t been much update about it… until now.

“The horror geek in me is excited when they're doing a new one, I really like those writers a lot,” creator Jeffrey Reddick told Digital Spy. “I've been talking to [producer] Craig [Perry] and the concept behind it is unique.” He points out that “reboot” is “too strong of a word” that makes it sound like they will be completely changing everything. That said, Reddick claims it will be a Final Destination film.

He then went on to express his excitement about Perry’s involvement in the upcoming movie. “Craig is the master of coming up with crazy openings and set pieces,” Reddick added. “He's told me a couple of things that happen in this one and it's going to be a lot of fun. It's not going feel like cash-grab Final Destination film.”

Perry says they’re “toying” with having the film take place “in the world of first responders,” like the EMTs, firemen, and the police since they deal with death every day and make choices that’ll affect someone’s life. “We rely on their good judgment, expertise and calm demeanor,” he said. “So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death – but now for themselves?” Perry thinks it’ll be an “interesting” world to set into a Final Destination feature and it could also “generate unique set pieces.” 

He then teased that upon watching the movie, people might not look at a revolving door the same way ever again.

This possible plot is intriguing and will certainly put things into a new perspective. Horror fans can’t wait to see what Melton and Dunstan comes up with for the sixth Final Destination movie.
