Death has not said its last word and will again pile up the victims in a new feature film “Final Destination” scheduled for the HBO Max service. The project progresses with the arrival of the director of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” on board.
Death on the trail
The film industry is steadfast and continues to believe that old successes can give birth to those of tomorrow. The horror genre is not spared, as evidenced by the current release of the new feature film Scream. The examples can be cited in shambles and we do not forget thata return of the franchise Final destination is still in the pipeline. A project which became known several months ago but which has not really progressed for a while, not helped by the health crisis.
The very first film, released in 2000, laid the foundations for a rather funny high concept since the main threat is none other than the death. Adolescents are hunted down by the Grim Reaper, who redoubles his inventiveness to kill them. During the five opus which saw the light of day in the space of ten years, we were entitled to some striking kills – failing to live great moments of cinema.
Final Destination 6 is still relevant
The concept can be declined almost to infinity, as long as original situations are imagined. This is precisely what we expect from a sixth feature film, which should be closer to a reboot. The American press, including Variety, reports that the project will be carried by a high-profile director in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Jon Watts. Its name will necessarily mean something to you because it is behind the box Spider-Man: No Way Home and that he must then take care of the new 4 Fantastic.
For now, he is content to partner with New Line as a producer and to be at the origin of the script since it is he who imagined the outlines. Screenwriters Lori Evans Taylor and Guy Busick will now take care of laying a screenplay. No name has been put forward for the director’s post, Jon Watts should not take on this task. if we are to believe the various returns of the American media. We are therefore waiting to know who will be the chosen one who will have to resuscitate Final destination on the small screen. Because, yes, let’s not forget that the film is slated for release on the HBO Max platform!
