No one feels quite as safe riding a roller coaster, waiting for a train to pass, or, god forbid, driving behind a semi hauling logs after the credits roll. According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema's terrifying franchise is getting relaunched with Final Destination 6, and Emmy-nominated directors are now in charge of directdirecting.
Although rumors of a reboot have been around since 2019, it was partially the search for the right director that stalled New Line's next death-defying film. But Lipovsky and Stein, best known for their partnership on 2018's Freaks starring Emile Hirsch, proved their worthiness for directing Death's continuing series.
Lipovsky and Stein met with New Line Cinema executives and producers to discuss their ideas. As the meeting came to a stop, both filmmakers realized that the ceiling fan overhead was crashing again, killing one of the directors.
Final Destination 6 will continue the series' traditional franchise approach by beginning the killings with a premonition, and a lot of unfortunate individuals will attempt to escape Death's notorious one-by-one murder plot. Both Guy Busick and Lori Evans Taylor are excellent writers.
No cast members have been attached to the production at this time, but Craig Perry and Sheila Hanahan Taylor, the original film's producers, will work alongside Spider-Man: Homecoming's filmmaker Jon Watts and Atlanta's Dianne McGunigle.
