Final Destination writers have finally blessed us with details of the upcoming movie.
At the beginning of last year, it was teased the franchise was getting a reboot but very little has been revealed about what we can expect.
The previous films have dealt with Death chasing plane crash survivors, those who escaped a motorway pile-up and people getting trapped on a rollercoaster – but this time they’ll be focusing on the emergency services.
And we’re seriously into it.
‘We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police. These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die,’ producer Craig Perry said.
‘We rely on their good judgement, expertise and calm demeanour. So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death – but now for themselves?’
While we’re all living for the franchise being extended once more, creator Jeffrey Reddick doesn’t want it tied to the phrase ‘reboot’.
‘I think reboot is probably too strong of a word,’ he told Digital Spy. ‘It makes it sound like they’re going to change everything, but it’s definitely a Final Destination movie.’
And, foreshadowing an epic death scene, he teased: ‘I don’t think anybody will look at a revolving door in the same way again…’
The original films saw a group of unsuspecting characters accidentally ‘cheat’ Death in a series of random ways – getting off a plane before it crashed, fleeing a racetrack, and attempting to escape a collapsing bridge.
But it wasn’t that simple and Death would come back and get revenge, making their eventual deaths looks like bizarre, elaborate accidents.
Who could forget that tanning-booth scene?
The franchise was wildly successful, earning a whopping $700million (£544m) at the box office and making sure we could never even think about laser-eye surgery in the same way.
