Of course, Lipovsky and Stein aren’t the only names attached to this project. Director Jon Watts, perhaps best known for his successful “Spider-Man” trilogy for Marvel Studios starring Tom Holland, wrote the initial treatment for the revival and will serve as a producer on the project. “Ready or Not” scribes Lori Evans Taylor and Guy Busick are writing the script, and franchise mainstay Craig Perry is returning as a producer.
Out of all the esteemed horror franchises out there, it’s weird that it has taken this long for a “Final Destination” reboot to happen. As previously stated, “Final Destination 5” does have a shocking and contemplative ending that could be difficult to top. However, considering Lipovsky and Stein have experience in tackling existential topics in bizarre ways thanks to “Freaks,” they could be just the right people for this daunting task.
“Final Destination 6” does not yet have a release date, but it’s likely that it will begin production at some point next year.
