Final Destination Reboot Delayed Due To COVID-19!
The Final Destination series never quite cracked the pantheon of all-time great horror franchises, but it did come pretty close.
The concept of the grim reaper coming for people who save a group of people whose time was up in horrifying was was genius, but the films exhausted after Final Destination 5. Read on because a new film is in the works, but it’s a reboot…
CelebnMovies247.com has learned that the Final Destination reboot is now delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s been almost a decade since Final Destination 5, which actually scored the best reviews that the franchise had ever seen.
A reboot was officially announced in January of last year, but there’s been very little word on the project since. As usual, there is always someone who thinks they can make a better version of a formula film that is already working. But the reboot has hit a wall.
Creator Jeffrey Reddick has now confirmed in a recent interview that the Coronavirus pandemic has presented a pretty serious roadblock.
It appears fans of the Final Destination films will have to wait a bit longer.
Reddick revealed that the pandemic has caused some serious delays.
They were working on a new Final Destination but that got pushed back because of COVID. It’s always if the formula’s not broken, don’t fix it. But my thing is that Death has so many designs in my brain that it could use. Like, we’re seeing one design with the Rube Goldberg kind of thing. But Death could get us in so many ways. In my original story, which was a little dark because I am a Nightmare on Elm Street fan, Death kind of toyed with them psychologically for some sin or some wrongdoing they did, and they ended up killing themselves. So, that was a little dark. I don’t think I would want to make that movie now, but I just think that Death, it would be fun to explore that world, almost like what we did with the second one. I want to expand on the mythology. If I came back, I would want to do something different.
