AVATAR Visual Effects Supervisor Steven Quale to Direct FINAL DESTINATION 5

     June 8, 2010

Steven Quale, who served as the second unit director and visual effects supervisor on James Cameron’s Avatar and the second unit director on Titanic, has signed on to helm Final Destination 5, which will be in 3D.  Variety reports that Quale also worked on the visual effects for Terminator 2: Judgment Day and co-directed the documentary Aliens of the Deep with Cameron.  The latest Final Destination will once again be produced by Craig Perry.  A Nightmare on Elm Street screenwriter Eric Heisserer is penning the script.  What is that script?  It’s “…bad things happen.”  The importance of getting a guy like Quale is that you need a strong director since these movies are all about the elaborate, Rube Goldberg-inspired kills.

Last year’s The Final Destination managed to gross $182 million worldwide.  Final Destination 5 (tentative title) is slated to hit theaters on August 26, 2011.
