Jeffrey Reddick Says Movie Won’t Follow Usual Formula

At this point, the Final destination franchise has quite specific beats: it involves premonitions and the main characters who manage to cheat death only to end up being beaten by the reaper. But this time the original Final destination creator and writer, Jeffrey Reddickrevealed that the sixth installment of the death-filled American horror franchise would deviate from the usual formula.

Reddick has not been involved in the development of the Final destination movies since the second, but he told Dread Central earlier that he will be kept informed about the production of Final destination 6† “I actually talked to the screenwriters. They were really curious. They wanted to talk to me and get a little insight into what I thought was crucial to the Final Destination franchise and some ideas and things like that,” Reddick recalled. adding that he had a lovely chat with the film’s staff. “I’m really excited about the story I can’t tell you about.”


While the plan to change the formula has been revealed, Reddick also shared that the upcoming movie is still true to its premise.

“I’ll say it’s not just another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we’ve added to every movie to want to change it up a little bit. This is a real Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve established. I think I can say so much.”

Previously announced in 2019, production of the sixth episode was suspended due to the pandemic, but HBO Max ultimately chose to revive the series, appealing to the director of Spider-Man: No Way HomeJon Watts, to produce the film for New Line Cinema. Not much has been revealed about it yet Final destination 6† And while Reddick initially said he’s changing things up, the sixth installment of the popular horror franchise is said to still feature impending death in retrospect.

The franchise doesn’t seem to have reached its final destination yet. And while not all five sequels aged well, Final destination franchise marked its place in both the pop culture and horror scenes, thanks to its mix of gore and paranormal set pieces, with iconic deaths that stunned (or horrified) viewers.

There is no planned release date for it yet Final destination 6.
