We have word today for fans of the Final Destination series that number 4 will soon be loosed on a theatre near you. We get the scoop from the professionals at Variety:
New Line has tapped Shantel VanSanten, Bobby Campo and Hayley Webb as the stars of “Final Destination 4.” Nick Zano, Krista Allen and Andy Fiscella round out the cast. David Richard Ellis, who helmed the second installment, will direct the horror-thriller. Story kicks off when a teenager’s premonition of a deadly racecar crash spares his life and those of a few lucky others. But death continues to stalk those who escaped it.
New Line is shooting the latest chapter, budgeted at $43 million, in 3-D. The previous three “Final Destinations” have grossed more than $150 million at the domestic box office.
I can’t believe Final Destination has become a series. I saw the first film, forgot about it almost immediately; and now we are at the fourth installment. Death really has to get his shit together and stop leaking premonitions. I guess so long as the series makes money, it will continue to grow.
If they are going to do this again - they should do it on a grand scale. I want a film where a city bus driver sees a premonition of him driving the bus through a Denny’s window. The bus explodes killing dozens of people, and then he awakes from his slumber. Leonard (the bus driver) decides to call in sick, everyone lives, and now death will have to work double time to hunt everyone down. I don’t want to see a handful of teenagers get killed, I want to see death hunt down Denny’s patrons, all the weirdos that take a city bus and the unfortunate people that have to sit beside them. Public transit is a magnet for the crazy and the bizarre; get the right bus and it’s the world’s greatest two dollar circus.
Shooting is set to begin this month and we will be certain to slide you a trailer as soon as it becomes available.
