It’s time to learn a brand new set of rules as the grim spectre of Final Destination 6 looms over us all. With the first movie officially turning 20, the legacy of Final Destination is set to continue in a big way with a sixth movie/soft reboot.
It’s been a whopping nine years since we last cheated death in Final Destination 5. The movie served as something of a clever prequel to the rest of the series and brought back the brilliant Tony Todd as William Bludworth.
While everything was tied together with a neat bow, the fact that FD5 was the second highest-grossing in the franchise teased this wasn’t the end of the road.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick and producer Craig Perry dropped the first details on what’s coming and confirmed the next installment will focus on first responders. Perry explained, “We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police.”
Discussing why he’s moving away from sexy teens and dim-witted twentysomethings, Perry added, “These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die. We rely on their good judgement, expertise and calm demeanour.
