The Final Destination film franchise has been in something of a hiatus since the release of Final Destination 5. Of course, it isn’t because of not trying. In fact, there’s a Final Destination 6 that’s being actively developed – and it looks like a new writer has just been attached. However, it’s been revealed in a rather subtle announcement.
As noted via Deadline, where they were actually discussing the film Bed Rest, they noted that the film’s writer Lori Evans Taylor is actually working on Final Destination 6. This is something of a surprise, as she wasn’t previously tied to the film until now. As such, it’s unclear how far her involvement goes or whether or not she’s adhering to the last iteration of the film’s script that we were previously told about.
Here’s all Deadline had to say:
“Taylor is currently writing Final Destination 6.”
Again, this isn’t much information to go off of. So hopefully we’ll learn more details about her iteration of the film soon. Until then, this is what was previously stated about Final Destination 6:
“We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police,” producer Craig Perry revealed.
“These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die.”
This previous update definitely suggested that the next Final Destination film would take the franchise into new territory. But, as creator Jeffrey Reddick also previously confirmed, it would still remain canon with the Final Destination brand. In any case, it’ll be interesting to see where this new film could still go and whether or not Lori Evans Taylor will also be focusing on first responders or finding another angle to expand on. As such, fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any future Final Destination updates as we have them.
