After The Final Destination took in a tidy sum at this time last year, New Line hasn’t hesitated to get Final Destination 5* ready for release by this time next year. With production ready to start next month (visual effects whiz Steven Quale is directing), the cast is finally coming together for the fifth film in a franchise that very much relishes killing said cast off.
In the lead, we have Nicholas D’Agosto (he’s that kid who counted all of the votes in Election before Matthew Broderick’s character interfered), and more importantly, David “Champ Kind/Todd Packer” Koechner is on board as… well, is it even fair to say comic relief in a series this goofy? Look, the man was in Snakes on a Plane; he knows full well what he’s doing here.
If Variety’s to be believed, then we’re in store for — future spoilers? — gruesome deaths involving “a suspension bridge and laser eye surgery.” You guys can keep your Saw series. This is my jam right here.
*If I don’t actually refer to it as 5nal Destination, then that title will just… go away. Right?
