Eric Heisserer, who wrote the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and the upcoming prequel for The Thing, has been hired to pen the screenplay for Final Destination 5 (which will be in 3D).  For those who don’t know, all of the Final Destination movies work like so: 1.) Main character has premonition of horrific disaster; 2.) Main character and supporting characters escape horrific disaster; 3.) Death comes to finish off each surviving character in the most elaborate fashion possible; 4.) Profit.  Each film has a modest budget and rakes in about $50 million.  The Final Destination was supposed to be the last one but then it grossed $181 million worldwide and here we are.

Heat Vision says not much is known about the plot (although I think I laid it out right there) but one of the characters will be undergoing laser-eye surgery.  I’m waiting for the Final Destination where Death takes out a character during a vaginoplasty.  New Line is hoping that Heisserer will break up the repetition of the series.  I suppose you could do that by having Death kill people in five seconds rather than five minutes.

    They should have just stopped with the 2nd one. It attempted to do something different with the mythos. I'm not too keen on another one of these.

    So the prequel to one of the best horrors in history will now be linked to a stupid franchise by having the same writer, great, now i dont have to get my hopes up for the THING prequel.

    for shame!

    What does that swinging sword hanging from the ceiling do? Does it stab the poor pathetic whiny victim in their eyeball while the audience gasps and shivers with delight?
