Breaking news! Are you ready for this? Because it’s totally gonna blow your mind. Ok, ok. Here we go: the fifth film in the Final Destination franchise will be called… drumroll… 5nal Destination. Clever, right? Because it’s the fifth one!
Set to be directed by Steven Quale (interestingly enough, the second unit director on Avatar), the 3D flick from New Line will start filming in September, targeting August 26, 2011 as the release date. Hit the jump for some inside info on this utterly unpredictable film.
Our friends over at Bloody Disgusting have the scoop on the series’ trademark opening disaster scene. Apparently, this time, a suspension bridge collapses. I know, I know — you want more, but we have no idea what happens after that… except, of course, that one character will envision the tragedy before it happens and save a bunch of people, who inevitably are picked off one by one in ever more off-the-wall ways by the ever less subtle force of death until one or two or maybe even three are left and they end up just barely escaping their fate only to realize at the very end that “Oops, we’re still screwed.”
God bless the 3D movement for keeping this franchise out of the bargain bin at Blockbuster and on the big screen where it belongs!
